Plasma lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) has been measured by an enzymatic method. We did not observe any significant sex variations, but age variations were found. In females, LCAT activities are stable up to 40 years (60 mumol . 1.1 . h-1 at the 50th centile). Also, from 50 years the median increased progressively to 76 mumol . 1-1 . h-1. In males, the activity increased from 52 to 71 mumol . 1-1 . h-1 at the 50th centile in two age groups (15-20 years and 50 years). The effect of… CONTINUE READING
