OBJECTIVE Reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) can be defined as a pathway of flux of cholesterol from peripheral tissues to the liver for potential excretion into feces. This prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind crossover study assessed the effect of ezetimibe on several RCT parameters in hyperlipidemic patients. METHODS Following 7 weeks of(More)
Liver glucose metabolism plays a central role in glucose homeostasis and may also regulate feeding and energy expenditure. Here we assessed the impact of glucose transporter 2 (Glut2) gene inactivation in adult mouse liver (LG2KO mice). Loss of Glut2 suppressed hepatic glucose uptake but not glucose output. In the fasted state, expression of(More)
BACKGROUND Reverse cholesterol transport from peripheral tissues is considered the principal atheroprotective mechanism of high-density lipoprotein, but quantifying reverse cholesterol transport in humans in vivo remains a challenge. We describe here a method for measuring flux of cholesterol though 3 primary components of the reverse cholesterol transport(More)
Atheroprotection by high density lipoprotein (HDL) is considered to be mediated through reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) from peripheral tissues. We investigated in vivo cholesterol fluxes through the RCT pathway in patients with low plasma high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) due to mutations in APOA1. Seven carriers of the L202P mutation in(More)
