The low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein (LRP) is a cell receptor that has close structural homology to the LDL and very low density lipoprotein receptors and thus is believed to play an important role in lipid metabolism. This study was carried out to evaluate the distribution of a known tetranucleotide repeat polymorphism in the LRP gene and its association with serum lipoprotein-lipid and apolipoprotein levels in four large samples comprising Hispanics (n=373) and non… CONTINUE READING
