Homocysteine content of lipoproteins in hypercholesterolemia.

Abstract

In order to study the connection between homocysteine and lipid metabolism in atherosclerosis, homocysteine was determined in lipoprotein fractions from men with hypercholesterolemia. All lipoprotein fractions contain a considerably higher level of homocysteine in hypercholesterolemia, compared to normolipemic men, varying from 2.2 to 7.2 times higher… (More)
