Identification of Rev-erbalpha as a physiological repressor of apoC-III gene transcription.

Abstract

Elevated serum levels of triglyceride-rich remnant lipoproteins (TRL) are a major risk factor predisposing a subject to atherosclerosis. Apolipoprotein C-III (apoC-III) is a major constituent of TRL that impedes triglyceride hydrolysis and remnant clearance and, as such, may exert pro-atherogenic activities. In the present study, transient cotransfection… (More)
