The role of high density lipoproteins in lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase activity: perspectives from Tangier disease.

Abstract

Lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase activity and the lipid composition of VLDL and LDL were examined in five patients homozygous for Tangier disease. The following results were obtained: I. The percentage of cholesterol that was esterified was similar in Taniger and control lipoproteins. II. Linoleic acid was the predominant fatty acid constituent of… (More)
