The identification of mutations in ABCA1 in patients with Tangier disease and familial HDL deficiency demonstrated that inadequate transport of phospholipid and cholesterol to the extracellular space results in the hypercatabolism of lipid-poor nascent HDL particles. However, the relationship between changes in ABCA1 activity and HDL levels is not clear. To address this question directly in vivo, we have used bacterial artificial chromosome transgenic approaches, which allow for appropriate… CONTINUE READING
