BackgroundA comparison of post-heparin and pre-heparin plasma lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and hepatic triglyceride lipase (HTGL) on the metabolism of remnant lipoproteins (RLPs) has not been reported yet.
MethodsHealthy volunteers were injected with heparin for LPL and HTGL determination in the fasting (8:00) and postprandial (20:00) plasma on the same day. Plasma total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), LDL-C, HDL-C, small dense LDL (sdLDL)-C, remnant lipoprotein (RLP)-C, RLP-TG, the RLP-TG/RLP-C ratio, adiponectin and apoCIII were measured.
ResultsLPL activity and concentration in the post-heparin plasma exhibited a significant inverse correlation with TG, RLP-C, RLP-TG, and RLP particle size estimated as RLP-TG/RLP-C ratio and sdLDL-C, and positively correlated with HDL-C. HTGL was only inversely correlated with HDL-C. LPL concentration in the pre-heparin plasma was also inversely correlated with the RLP-TG/RLP-C ratio and other lipoprotein parameters. Adiponectin was inversely correlated with RLP-TG/RLP-C ratio and apoC III was positively correlated with RLP-TG/RLP-C ratio, but not correlated with LPL activity.
ConclusionLPL activity and concentration were inversely and significantly correlated with the particle size of RLP in both the post-heparin and pre-heparin plasma. Those results suggest that LPL concentration in pre-heparin plasma can take the place of LPL activity in the post-heparin plasma.
