1. Regulation of the hepatic ACAT2 expression and roles of HNF1alhpa and HNF4alpha in cholesterol metabolism
Sammanfattning : Acyl-Coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferases (ACATs) 1 and 2 are integral membrane proteins located in rough endoplasmatic reticulum that catalyzes the formation of cholesteryl esters (CEs) from cholesterol and long-chain fatty acids. ACAT1 is present in most tissues, whereas ACAT2 is confined to enterocytes and hepatocytes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Excess plasma cholesterol, in particular high levels of LDL cholesterol, is a major risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis. The liver has a central role in the regulation of cholesterol metabolism: i) a major part of the cholesterol present in the body is synthesized in the liver; ii) the level of plasma lipoproteins is regulated by liver uptake and secretion of these particles and iii) the liver is essential for elimination of cholesterol from the body as such or by its conversion into bile acids.

Sammanfattning : Liver and intestine are important organs for the metabolism of cholesterol and bile acids in the body. Dysfunction in cholesterol and bile acid metabolism may lead to diseases such as cholesterol gallstone (GS) disease and atherosclerosis. LÄS MER
