Thyroid dysfunction is associated with multiple changes in lipoprotein metabolism, and we have determined the effects of thyroid dysfunction on plasma cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) activity. CETP is a plasma protein that mediates the exchange of cholesteryl ester and triglyceride between plasma lipoproteins and plays an important role in high-density lipoprotein metabolism and in the reverse cholesterol transport pathway. Plasma CETP activity was assayed in 18 hyperthyroid and in 17… CONTINUE READING
