Ethanol stimulates apo A-1 secretion in human hepatocytes: a possible mechanism underlying the cardioprotective effect of ethanol

, : Ethanol stimulates apo A-1 secretion in human hepatocytes: a possible mechanism underlying the cardioprotective effect of ethanol. Nutrition Reviews 51(5): 151-152

A mechanism which may underlie the cardioprotective effect of ethanol is described. The effect of ethanol on secretion of the major protein component of high density lipoproteins, apoprotein A-1 (apo A-1), was examined in cultured human hepatocytes. Apo A-1 plays an important role in reverse cholesterol transport by binding this substance in peripheral tissue and transporting it to the liver. Ethanol stimulated synthesis of apo A-1 in cultured cells. This ethanol-induced synthesis increased cholesterol efflux from cultured fibroblasts. Enhanced activity of the reverse cholesterol pathway, mediated by increased hepatic apo A-1 synthesis, may account for the relationship between ethanol consumption and the reduced incidence of coronary heart disease. .

It is generally accepted dogma that sexual maturation in decapod crustaceans takes place after the "molt of puberty" to the adult form. However, in many instances, sexual maturation may take place before the "pubertal molt" res...

Array CGH is widely used in cytogenetics centres for postnatal constitutional genomeanalysis, and is now recommended as a first line test in place of G-banded chromosomeanalysis. At our centre, first line testing by oligonucleotide array CGH for a...

The budding yeast kinetochore is composed of an inner and outer protein complex, which binds to centromere (CEN) DNA and attaches to microtubules. We performed a genetic synthetic dosage lethality screen to identify novel kinetochore proteins in...
