Twelve subjects (6 women, 6 men) were given 120 g fat orally for 2 h to study its effect on serum high density lipoproteins (HDL), HDL subfractions and apoproteins A-I and A-II. In addition, we measured the fasting activity of adipose tissue lipoprotein lipase (LPL). The HDL2 mass concentration increased significantly in women (216 +/- 10 vs 232 +/- 12 mg/dl, P less than 0.01) but not in men (114 +/- 10 vs 119 +/- 11 mg/dl, NS). The changes of the HDL2 mass in women were due to significant… CONTINUE READING
