Taste responses of normal-weight, obese, and formerly obese individuals for sucrose and fat containing stimuli were examined using a mathematical modelling technique known as the Response Surface Method. The subjects accurately rated intensities of sweetness, fatness, and creaminess of 20 different mixtures of milk, cream, and sugar, and no mixture(More)
Because there are no characteristic clinical or biochemical manifestations, the heterozygote state for lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency has been difficult to detect. Measurements of postheparin plasma LPL activity and of LPL mass were performed in six families of probands with LPL deficiency to characterize the heterozygote state. LPL mass was measured(More)
Familial lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency is a rare genetic disorder accompanied by well-characterized manifestations. The phenotypic expression of heterozygous LPL deficiency has not been so clearly defined. We studied the pedigree of a proband known to be homozygous for a mutation resulting in nonfunctional LPL. Hybridization of DNA from 126 members(More)
Postprandial lipoprotein metabolism may be important in atherogenesis and has not been studied in detail in noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). We used the vitamin A fat-loading test to label triglyceride-rich lipoprotein particles of intestinal origin after ingestion of a high fat mixed meal containing 60 g fat/m2 and 60,000 U vitamin A/m2 in(More)
Bovine milk lipoprotein lipase (LPL) induced binding, uptake, and degradation of 125I-labeled normal human triglyceride-rich lipoproteins by cultured mutant fibroblasts lacking LDL receptors. The induction was dose-dependent and occurred whether LPL and 125I-lipoproteins were added to incubation media simultaneously or LPL was allowed to bind to cell(More)
An assay procedure using three different methods to recover lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity from biopsy specimens of human adipose tissue has been developed. Elution of enzyme from small pieces of tissue was performed at 4 and 37 degrees C using a physiological buffer containing heparin and serum. Extraction of enzyme from a tissue homogenate was carried(More)
The present study reports on the interaction between basal triglyceride and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in determining the magnitude of postprandial triglyceridemia. The vitamin A fat-loading test was used to label intestinally derived triglyceride-rich particles after a high fat meal in 18 subjects with low HDL cholesterol and 6 control(More)
Human monocyte-derived macrophages in culture produced lipoprotein lipase. Although freshly isolated blood monocytes did not secrete much lipase activity, 1 d in culture was sufficient to trigger measureable enzyme production. During 3 wk in culture, maximal activity was attained after 7 d. At all times, the culture medium contained more enzyme activity(More)
Lipoprotein lipase (LPL), the major lipolytic enzyme involved in the conversion of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins to remnants, was found to compete with binding of activated alpha 2-macroglobulin (alpha 2M*) to the low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP)/alpha 2-macroglobulin receptor. Bovine milk LPL displaced both 125I-labeled alpha 2M* and(More)
