Healthy individuals carrying the PCSK9 p.R46L variant and familial hypercholesterolemia patients carrying PCSK9 p.D374Y exhibit lower plasma concentrations of PCSK9.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: We measured plasma PCSK9 concentrations in healthy men with a PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) loss-of-function variant (p.R46L), in statin-treated patients with a clinical diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and carrying a PCSK9 gain-of-function mutation (p.D374Y), and in statin-treated patients with FH due to different genetic causes.
