|Abstract:||Apolipoprotein A-V has an important role in lipid metabolism, specifically for triglyceride-rich lipoproteins. However, its mechanism of action is still poorly understood. Clinical significance at present comes largely from genetic studies showing a consistent association with plasma triglyceride concentrations. Moreover, the effects of common genetic variants on triglyceride concentrations and disease risk are further modulated by other factors such as diet, pharmacological interventions and BMI. Therefore, these genetic variants could be potentially used to predict cardiovascular disease risk and individualize therapeutic options to decrease cardiovascular disease risk. © 2008 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.|
