Description du projet :
The effects of gene polymorphisms (mutations) on lipoprotein metabolism in response to dietary fat and cholesterol have drawn increasing attention in recent years. The molecular mechanisms underlying these effects are supposed to be useful in identifying and counselling certain individuals to avoid high-fat diets, which would otherwise specifically increase their risk of developing hyperlipidemia and thus increase their risk of metabolic disorders and diabetes type 2. More and more data are available on the effects of dietary fat and cholesterol, hence, the causal relationship with reported genetic factors is warranted to be applied.
