Milestones

  1. In contrast to LDL receptor deficiency, deficiency of the LDL receptor-adapting protein ARH (LDLRAP1:c.1A>G) allows significant LDL receptor activity in lymphocytes.
  2. Morbid obesity alters sperm concentration, the expression and cellular location of lipid receptors (SR-BI and LDLr), transporters (ABCA1), and HSL in human sperm. However, after obesity surgery surgical treatment, sperm characteristics do not improve despite beneficial changes in reproductive hormones.
  3. Curcumin, a polyphenol widely used in gastronomy, alters the ceramides metabolism and counteracts the esterified lipids accumulation in the cells.
  4. Printing of protein and DNA microarrays on multiwell plates and development of a membrane microarray for the diagnosis of cow's milk protein allergy.
  5. The bone involvement of the patient with phenylketonuria (PKU) is not as severe as in other metabolopathies, unlike what has been admitted to date. Likewise, the characteristic low cholesterol levels in these patients during childhood increase notably with age, blurring the diagnostic value of this parameter in adults.
