The purinergic receptor P2Y(13) has been shown to play a role in the uptake of holo-HDL particles in in vitro hepatocyte experiments. In order to determine the role of P2Y(13) in lipoprotein metabolism in vivo, we ablated the expression of this gene in mice. Here we show that P2Y(13) knockout mice have lower fecal concentrations of neutral sterols(More)
OBJECTIVE The gene TSPAN8 was recently identified in a genome-wide association study as the most likely causal gene in a locus that was correlated with the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in northern European individuals. To assess whether Tspan8 is the actual T2D-causal gene in this locus, we ablated its expression in mice and determined the consequences of(More)
