In this regard, the apoE phenotype of individuals has a strong impact on their ability to clear chylomicron remnant particles. The presence of E z (results from a mutation in the E protein), even in a single dose, significantly retards chylomicron remnant clearance. , 1989). Administration of a triglyceride-enriched meal to individuals with angiographically proven coronary artery disease (CAD) revealed that these subjects metabolized triglyceride-rich lipoprotein particles with reduced efficiency in comparison to age-matched healthy controls.

Both low and high HDL levels can be inherited. Recent studies from this and another laboratory have uncovered a strong genetic link between variation in the CETP gene and HDL cholesterol. 0 mmolll) HDL levels. Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) were observed in the genes coding for apolipoprotein-AI, LCAT and CETP. , 1989) components of HDL. Subjects with the cutting site for the enzyme were likely to have higher plasma concentrations of HDL cholesterol and apo AI. , 1989). 6 DIET AND PLASMA CHOLESTEROL METABOLISM Most subjects who die of heart disease do not have a genetically defined dyslipidaemia.
