To date, no data are available on relationship between apolipoprotein E (apo E) polymorphism and lipid levels in Moroccan population. The present work reports an apo E polymorphism repartition in Moroccan population and relationship between this polymorphism and the levels of plasma cholesterol, triglycerides, apo A1, B and E. Blood samples from 168 healthy(More)
Young people with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) (n = 104, 7 to 19 years old) were classified into groups of good (I), fair (II), and poor (III) diabetic control and compared to 22 healthy controls of same origin and age range. Triglycerides (TG) were significantly elevated with respect to controls only in group III, and total cholesterol was(More)
The effects of chronic ethanol administration on the activities of gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) in plasma and in hepatic plasma membranes of male and female rats are studied. The effects of alcohol on the lipid level in plasma are also investigated. After 4 weeks of treatment, GGT activity significantly increases in plasma either in male rats (131%, p(More)
Twenty-six children with marasmus and 27 with kwashiorkor were compared with 23 control children of matching ages. Kwashiorkor was characterized by increased phospholipids (NS), low (P < 0.01) apolipoprotein (apo) B-rich LDL, and near normal apo A-I and HDL-C. In children with marasmus apo B (P < 0.02) LDL-C (NS), apo A-I (P < 0.01), and HDL-C (P < 0.001)(More)
We studied the influence of chlorpromazine on the release of enzymes (beta-glucuronidase, EC; lactate dehydrogenase, EC; pyruvate kinase, and proteins using human granulocytes isolated and maintained at 37 degrees C. Chlorpromazine had a biphasic effect on enzyme release and the inhibition of the glycolytic pathway could be(More)
We studied the influence of substrates and glycolysis inhibitors on the release of proteins and enzymes from human leukocytes. We show the relationship between metabolic level and percentage of enzyme release. Leukocyte kept alive in a nutrient-free bicarbonate medium liberate enzymes even though their metabolic state is satisfactory. The addition of(More)
The authors compared the alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyl-transferase activities in leukocytes from presumably healthy subjects and from epileptic patients treated with anticonvulsants, matched for age and sex. Intraleukocyte alkaline phosphatase activity was higher in women than in men and was greatly reduced by the anticonvulsant drugs.(More)
