Causes and Consequences of Hypertriglyceridemia

Chris J. Packard, Jan Boren, Marja-Riitta Taskinen
2020 Frontiers in Endocrinology  
Elevations in plasma triglyceride are the result of overproduction and impaired clearance of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins-very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) and chylomicrons. Hypertriglyceridemia is characterized by an accumulation in the circulation of large VLDL-VLDL1-and its lipolytic products, and throughout the VLDL-LDL delipidation cascade perturbations occur that give rise to increased concentrations of remnant lipoproteins and small, dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL). The elevated
more » ... risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in hypertriglyceridemia is believed to result from the exposure of the artery wall to these aberrant lipoprotein species. Key regulators of the metabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins have been identified and a number of these are targets for pharmacological intervention. However, a clear picture is yet to emerge as to how to relate triglyceride lowering to reduced risk of atherosclerosis.

Crosstalk between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and cardiometabolic syndrome

Soo Lim, Marja-Riitta Taskinen, Jan Borén
2018 Obesity Reviews  
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a chronic condition characterized by fat accumulation combined with low-grade inflammation in the liver. A large body of clinical and experimental data shows that increased flux of free fatty acids from increased visceral adipose tissue and de novo lipogenesis can lead to NAFLD and insulin resistance. Thus, individuals with obesity, insulin resistance, and dyslipidaemia are at the greatest risk of developing NAFLD. Conversely, NAFLD is a phenotype of
more » ... ardiometabolic syndrome. Notably, researchers have discovered a close association between NAFLD and impaired glucose metabolism and focused on the role of NAFLD in the development of type 2 diabetes. Moreover, recent studies provide substantial evidence for an association between NAFLD and atherosclerosis and cardiometabolic disorders. Even if NAFLD can progress into severe liver disorders including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and cirrhosis, the majority of subjects with NAFLD die from cardiovascular disease eventually. In this review, we propose a potential pathological link between NAFLD/NASH and cardiometabolic syndrome. The potential factors that can play a pivotal role in this link, such as inflammation, insulin resistance, alteration in lipid metabolism, oxidative stress, genetic predisposition, and gut microbiota are discussed.

Lipoprotein lipase activity of adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in insulin-deficient human diabetes

Marja -Riitta Taskinen, Esko A. Nikkil�
1979 Diabetologia  
We have previously shown that lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity of tissues is an important determinant not only of plasma VLDL levels but also of HDL-cholesterol. Studies were designed to investigate whether the serum lipoprotein alterations in uncontrolled insulin-deficient diabetes can be accounted for by changes in LPL activity of tissues. The heparin-releasable LPL activity was determined from biopsy samples of adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in 16 patients with newly detected untreated
more » ... nsulin-deficient diabetes and in 16 age-, sex-and body weight-matched healthy control subjects. Repeat assays were carried out after the patients had been on insulin treatment for an average of two weeks and when the diabetes was well controlled. When untreated the patients had increased concentrations of triglycerides and cholesterol in whole serum and in VLDL and LDL while the HDL cholesterol level was lower than that of controls (p < 0.01). The cholesterol/triglyceride ratio in each of the three lipoproteins was similar in patients and controls. While untreated the diabetic patients had significantly reduced mean LPL activity both in adipose tissue (average 34% of control mean, p < 0.001) and in skeletal muscle (average 45% of control mean, p < 0.05). In the whole group HDL-cholesterol was positively correlated with adipose tissue LPL activity (r = + 0.58, p < 0.001) while log serum total triglyceride and log VLDL-triglyceride showed significant negative correlations with LPL activity of both adipose tissue and skeletal muscle. After initiation of insulin treatment the LPL activity increased significantly (p < 0.01) in both tissues but was still subnormal after 2 weeks. At the same time the VLDL and LDL concentrations had returned to normal while the ItDL-cholesterol remained low. The results suggest that the increase of VLDL and LDL triglyceride and the decrease of HDL-cholesterol present in uncontrolled insulin-deficient diabetes are, at least partly, accounted for by decreased LPL activity of tissues. The restoration of tissue LPL and of serum HDL-eholesterol by insulin are relatively slow processes. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that HDL-cholesterol concentration is dependent on the efficiency of removal of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from the circulation.

Improved Estimation of Human Lipoprotein Kinetics with Mixed Effects Models

Martin Berglund, Martin Adiels, Marja-Riitta Taskinen, Jan Borén, Bernt Wennberg, Yingmei Feng
2015 PLoS ONE  
Context Mathematical models may help the analysis of biological systems by providing estimates of otherwise un-measurable quantities such as concentrations and fluxes. The variability in such systems makes it difficult to translate individual characteristics to group behavior. Mixed effects models offer a tool to simultaneously assess individual and population behavior from experimental data. Lipoproteins and plasma lipids are key mediators for cardiovascular disease in metabolic disorders such

Results We developed a mixed effects model to study lipoprotein kinetics in a data set of 15 healthy individuals and 15 patients with type 2 diabetes. We compare the traditional and the mixed effects approach in terms of group estimates at various sample and data set sizes. Conclusion We conclude that the mixed effects approach provided better estimates using the full data set as well as with both sparse and truncated data sets. Sample size estimates showed that to compare lipoprotein secretion the mixed effects approach needed almost half the sample size as the traditional method.

Aggregation of dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol liposomes by human plasma low density lipoprotein

Satu Lauraeus, Juha M. Holopainen, Marja-Riitta Taskinen, Paavo K.J. Kinnunen
1998 Biochimica et Biophysica Acta - Biomembranes  
Turbidity (absorbance at 470 nm) measurements revealed human serum low density lipoprotein (LDL) to cause, within a few minutes and at physiological pH and [NaCl], the aggregation of liquid crystalline large unilamellar liposomes (LUVs) of dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol (DMPG). No evidence for concomitant lipid or aqueous contents mixing was obtained with fluorescent assays for these processes, in keeping with the lack of fusion of LUVs. Involvement of apoB is implicated by the finding that

Aggregation of DMPG LUVs by LDL did depend on the ionic strength of the medium as well as on the phase state of the lipid. More specifically, below the main transition temperature T m maximal aggregation was seen in the presence of 25^100 mM NaCl, whereas slightly higher (up to 150 mM) [NaCl] were required when T s T m . Aggregation due to LDL was also observed for dimyristoylphosphatidylserine as well as for dipalmitoylphosphatidylglycerol LUVs, whereas liposomes composed of either unsaturated acidic phospholipids or different phosphatidylcholines were not aggregated. Involvement of electrostatic attraction between the acidic phosphate of DMPG and cationic residues in apoB is suggested by the finding that increasing the content of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) in DMPG liposomes reduced their aggregation and at X DMPC = 0.50 no response was evident. Notably, increasing the mole fraction of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleyl-PG (POPG) in DMPG LUVs progressively reduced their aggregation by LDL and at X POPG = 0.50 there was complete inhibition. The latter effect of POPG is likely to be due to augmented hydration of the unsaturated lipid constituting a barrier for the contact between apoB and the vesicle surface. In keeping with this view, the presence of the strongly hygroscopic polymer, poly(ethylene glycol) at 1% (by weight) enhanced the aggregation and could partly reverse the inhibition by POPG. ß
