Much evidence points to a relationship among kidney disease, lipoprotein metabolism, and the enzyme lipoprotein lipase (LPL), but there is little information on LPL in the kidney. The range of LPL activity in the kidney in five species differed by >500-fold. The highest activity was in mink, followed by mice, Chinese hamsters, and rats, whereas the activity(More)
Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) has high affinity for heparin and heparin-like compounds. In vivo the enzyme is attached to heparan sulfate proteoglycans on the endothelium of capillaries and larger blood vessels. The enzyme is released from these sites after intravenous injection of heparin. One has here investigated the effects of RG-13577 on LPL, both after(More)
Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is anchored at the vascular endothelium through interaction with heparan sulfate. It is not known how this enzyme is turned over but it has been suggested that it is slowly released into blood and then taken up and degraded in the liver. Heparin releases the enzyme into the circulating blood. Several lines of evidence indicate that(More)
