Association of cholesteryl ester transfer protein genotypes with CETP mass and activity, lipid levels, and coronary risk.
CONTEXT The importance of the cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) pathway in coronary disease is uncertain. Study of CETP genotypes can help better understand the relevance of this pathway toExpand

Elevated plasma cholesteryl ester transfer in NIDDM: relationships with apolipoprotein B-containing lipoproteins and phospholipid transfer protein.
Lecithin:cholesteryl acyl transferase (LCAT) and cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) are key factors in the esterification of cholesterol and the subsequent transfer of cholesteryl ester fromExpand

Plasma phospholipid transfer protein activity is related to insulin resistance: impaired acute lowering by insulin in obese Type II diabetic patients
Summary Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) and phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) have important functions in high density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism. We determined the association ofExpand

Apolipoprotein M predicts pre‐β‐HDL formation: studies in type 2 diabetic and nondiabetic subjects
Objective.  Studies in mice suggest that plasma apoM is lowered in hyperinsulinaemic diabetes and that apoM stimulates formation of pre‐β‐HDL. Pre‐β‐HDL is an acceptor of cellular cholesterol and mayExpand
