OBJECTIVE We examined various factors possibly related to metabolic syndrome, particularly focusing on nutritional assessment proteins such as retinol binding protein (RBP) and transthyretin (TTR), and remnant lipoproteins. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fasting serum lipid was analyzed in 58 Japanese adult volunteers (33 men and 25 women, 42.5 +/- 10.1 years old). RESULTS The lipid profiles of the subjects were classified by lipoprotein polyacrylamide gel electrophoretic patterns into Types S (n… CONTINUE READING
