Identification of a novel and heterozygous LMF1 nonsense mutation in an acute pancreatitis patient with severe hypertriglyceridemia, severe obesity and heavy smoking
Lipids in Health and Disease
Hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) is one of the most common etiologies of acute pancreatitis (AP). Variants in five genes involved in the regulation of plasma lipid metabolism, namely LPL, APOA5, APOC2, GPIHBP1 and LMF1, have been frequently reported to cause or predispose to HTG. Methods: A Han Chinese patient with HTG-induced AP was assessed for genetic variants by Sanger sequencing of the entire coding and flanking sequences of the above five genes. Results: The patient was a 32-year-old man withdoi:10.1186/s12944-019-1012-9 fatcat:wmijyhx3f5ftljgr2wmfa7o7nu
