    HELEN L DICHEK
    Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    J Lipid Res 45:551-60. 2004
    ..Our results demonstrate that the bridging function removes apoB-48- and apoB-100-containing lipoproteins by whole particle uptake and other mechanisms...
  2. ncbi request reprint Divergent effects of the catalytic and bridging functions of hepatic lipase on atherosclerosis
    HELEN L DICHEK
    Department of Pediatrics, Box 356320, University of Washington, 1959 NE Pacific Street, Seattle WA 98195, USA
    Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 24:1696-702. 2004
    ..We hypothesized that increased expression of both HL and ciHL reduces atherosclerosis in these mice...

    HELEN L DICHEK
    Dept of Pediatrics, Box 356320, Univ of Washington, 1959 NE Pacific St, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 290:E908-15. 2006
    ..These results demonstrate that HL deficiency, like LDLR deficiency, blunts the adrenal response to chronic ACTH stimulation and suggest a novel role for HL in adrenal physiology...
  4. ncbi request reprint Reduced atherosclerosis in chow-fed mice expressing high levels of a catalytically inactive human hepatic lipase
    Kun Qian
    Department of Pediatrics, Box 356320, University of Washington, 1959 NE Pacific Street, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Atherosclerosis 195:66-74. 2007
    ..Also, these results demonstrate that ciHL increases LRP expression and suggest increased LRP-mediated lipoprotein clearance as a pathway for ciHL-mediated atherosclerosis reduction...

    Harvey K Chiu
    Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington, 1959 NE Pacific Street, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    Endocrinology 151:993-1001. 2010
    ..Our results demonstrate that in mice, HL deficiency protects against diet-induced obesity and its hepatic sequelae. Inhibition of HL-activity may therefore have value in the prevention and/or treatment of obesity...
  6. pmc TGF-[beta]1 limits plaque growth, stabilizes plaque structure, and prevents aortic dilation in apolipoprotein E-null mice
    Andrew D Frutkin
    Department of Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA 98195 7710, USA
    Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 29:1251-7. 2009
    ..The role of TGF-beta1 in aneurysm formation is also controversial. We tested whether overexpression of active TGF-beta1 in hyperlipidemic mice affects atherogenesis and aortic dilation...
  7. pmc Level of macrophage uPA expression is an important determinant of atherosclerotic lesion growth in Apoe-/- mice
    Ranjini Krishnan
    Department of Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195 7710, USA
    Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 29:1737-44. 2009
    ..However, the mechanisms through which uPA acts remain unclear. In addition, although elevated uPA expression can accelerate murine atherosclerosis, there is not yet any evidence that decreased uPA expression would retard atherosclerosis...
