Disease Hyperlipoproteinemia Type III

Name Hyperlipoproteinemia Type III
Synonyms Broad Beta Disease | Broad-beta Hyperlipoproteinemia | Dysbetalipoproteinemia | Dysbetalipoproteinemia, Familial | Familial Dysbetalipoproteinemia | Familial Hypercholesterolemia with Hyperlipemia | Hyperlipoproteinemia, Broad beta | Hyperlipoproteinemia, Broad-beta | Hyperlipoproteinemias, Type III | Hyperlipoproteinemia, Type III | Type III Hyperlipoproteinemia | Type III Hyperlipoproteinemias
Definition An autosomal recessively inherited disorder characterized by the accumulation of intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL or broad-beta-lipoprotein). IDL has a CHOLESTEROL to TRIGLYCERIDES ratio greater than that of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. This disorder is due to mutation of APOLIPOPROTEINS E, a receptor-binding component of VLDL and CHYLOMICRONS, resulting in their reduced clearance and high plasma levels of both cholesterol and triglycerides.
