Abstract

Low plasma HDL-cholesterol concentrations are a hallmark of diabetic dyslipidemia. A common polymorphism (-514C-->T) of the hepatic lipase gene (LIPC), which accounts for up to 30% of the variation in hepatic lipase activity, has been associated with low hepatic lipase activity and high HDL-cholesterol concentrations.
