Heparin role in food lipidemia formation

V. V. SokolikG. Kh. Bozhko

Influence of endogenic and exogenic heparin in vivo on the basic forms of serum lipids content: cholesterol ethers, triacylglycerols, free fatty acids; as well as that glycosaminoglycan effect in vivo and in vitro on total lipoproteine lipase (LPL) activity and lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity of human blood serum were investigated on food lipidemia model. The decrease of intercell reserve heparin content and increase of the background and post-heparin levels of blood serum LPL activity were indicated after two hours food load. The role of two factors, endogenic heparin being one of them, in the increase of postprandial LPL activity of blood serum were discussed. At the same time, some inhibition of blood serum LCAT activity two hours after food reception (evidently, as a result of endogenic heparin action) and to a considerable extent inhibition of cholesterol etherification under the action of exogenic heparin in vivo were ascertain. Heparin in vitro (50 U/ml of blood serum) did not influence LCAT and total LPL activities. It was summarised that endogenic heparin is a factor, taking part in lipolysis processes regulation.
