Large-scale candidate gene analysis of HDL particle features.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) is an established marker of cardiovascular risk with significant genetic determination. However, HDL particles are not homogenous, and refined HDL phenotyping may improve insight into regulation of HDL metabolism. We therefore assessed HDL particles by NMR spectroscopy and conducted a large-scale candidate gene association analysis. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We measured plasma HDL-C and determined mean HDL particle size and particle number by NMR spec...
