NAD (P) H oxidase p22 phox C242T polymorphism affects LDL particle size and insulin resistance in Japanese subjects.

Abstract

Elevated cardiovascular risk is associated with an increased number of small, dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles, which exhibit increased susceptibility to lipid oxidation, however, the mechanism determining LDL particle size has never been fully elucidated. We have examined the association between the C242T polymorphism of the p22 phox gene… (More)
