Sources of interindividual variation in the quantitative levels of apolipoprotein B in pedigrees ascertained through a lipid clinic.

Abstract

The quantitative level of apolipoprotein (apo) B associated with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) varies among individuals within the population. This variation in level of the LDL receptor ligand appears to have predictive value, and may have an etiologic role, in coronary artery disease.
