Transgenic mice [29] and rabbits [52] overexpressing the human LCAT gene have been reported to have a modest reduction in fasting TG levels. Gene-targeted mice deficient in Chapter 2. The Role of LCAT in Atherosclerosis 33 LCAT activities are associated with elevated TG in a gene dose-dependent manner [36, 37]. Collectively, these data are in support of a mechanistic link between LCAT deficiency and HTG. In humans, a partial reduction in postheparin lipase activity has been observed in association with a fasting HTG [53], other possible contributions have not been explored.
