Association of Plasma Cholesteryl Ester Transfer Protein Activity with Severity of Angiographically Confirmed Coronary Artery Disease

    Abstract

    Background: Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), a hydrophobic glycoprotein has a key role in highdensity lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) metabolism. It transfers cholesteryl esters from HDL to apolipoprotein-B containing particles in exchange for triglycerides, thereby reducing the concentration of HDL-C and increasing non-HDL-C, a lipoprotein… (More)
