The association of fasting plasma sulfur-containing compounds with BMI, serum lipids and apolipoproteins.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Sulfur amino acids are recognized as potent modulators of lipid metabolism. Plasma total cysteine (tCys) is associated with fat mass, obesity and serum LDL-cholesterol and apolipoprotein (Apo)-B in large population studies. It is not known how fasting plasma concentrations of cysteine precursors and products relate to these associations in humans, given that sulfur-containing compounds (SCC) influence rodent weight gain and serum lipids. METHODS AND RESULTS: We investigat...
