Hypertriacylglycerolaemia: Genetic and epigenetic factors jointly regulate circulating triacylglycerol levels

Apolipoprotein A5 gene (APOA5) is one of the genes implicated in contributing to a  predisposition for hypertriacylglycerolaemia (HTG),  a complex polygenic pathology that is highly influenced by environment. Hypertriacylglycerolaemia is characterized by having high circulating triacylglycerol levels and is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. This genetic …
