APOC3

A gene on chromosome 11q23.1-q23.2 that encodes apolipoprotein C-III, a very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) protein that inhibits lipoprotein and hepatic lipases; it is thought to delay catabolism of triglyceride-rich particles.

We studied apo-CIII, which is known to correlate with triglycerides and triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and plays an important role in modulating their lipolytic degradation (12) and in preventing their uptake by the LDL receptor (13).
