Friedewald equation to calculate LDLC (mmol/L) LDLC = TC - HDLC - (TG/2.2), where (TG/2.2) is an estimation of VLDLC LDLC = low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TC = total cholesterol; HDLC = highdensity lipoprotein cholesterol; TG = triglyceride; VLDL
= very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
The Pearson correlation test revealed a low and positive correlation between systolic blood pressure (SBP) and triglycerides (r=0.15), SBP and cholesterol (r=0.25), SBP and VLDL
(r=0.15), PAD and triglycerides (r =0.19), PAD and cholesterol (r=0.27), and DBP and VLDL
(r=0.21) but a high and positive correlation between triglycerides and VLDL
No significant difference was observed in the VLDL
of the hypercholesterolemic rats of all the groups.
In addition, VLDL
cholesterol was also decreased (60 and 90mg of DHA, -22.08 and -19.70%; 10g and 15g salmon, -21.34 and -29.96%, respectively).
Steroids are involved in conversion of cholesterol to VLDL
and exertion of cholesterol as the bile.
Body mass index showed a nonsignificant inverse correlation with TC, TG, and VLDL
in both SCD and healthy patients (see Supplementary Data S1 in Supplementary Material available online at http://dx.doi.org/10.1155/2016/7650530).
Interestingly, while the role of LDL and their redox state in the atherogenesis have been both intensively studied [15-18], the experimental evidence supporting the direct involvement of VLDL
, native or oxidized, in the onset and development of atherosclerosis is still limited.
concentration was determined using the method described by Barter and Lally (1978).
The upper layer (containing chylomicrons and VLDL
) and lower layer (containing HDL and LDL) were separated and transferred to unique aliquot tubes.
This study also showed a significant decrease in the VLDL
values in the curcumin group.
La llegada del bolo alimenticio al intestino, asi como la elevada concentracion de acidos grasos saturados, estimula preferentemente la sintesis de VLDL
, en donde esta lipoproteina se convierte en LDL por accion de la lipoproteinlipasa (LPL), la cual representa una fuente de colesterol para los tejidos (la relacion VLDL--quilomicrones es 3:1 en ovinos segun Relling y Mattioli 2003).
is assembled on apolipoprotein B-100 (apoB100) and comprises 50% TG, 20% cholesterol esters, 15% phospholipids and 15% protein.
