The negative effect of ANGPTL8 on HDL-mediated cholesterol efflux capacity

It is well known that angiopoietin-like protein 8 (ANGPTL8) exerts its effects on lipid metabolism through the inhibition of lipoprotein lipase and subsequent elevation of plasma triglyceride. However, it is not clear whether ANGPTL8 could affect lipid metabolism via other pathways. The study was aimed to investigate the effects of ANGPTL8 on the function of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which plays a protective role in atherosclerosis progression.




Two hundred and ten subjects were recruited. Plasma ANGPTL8 was measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. Cholesterol efflux capacity was chosen as the biomarker of HDL function and measured via H3-cholesterol loading THP-1 cell models.




ANGPTL8 exhibited no significant difference between CAD group and nonCAD group, but ANGPTL8 in DM group was significantly higher than that in the nonDM group [568.3 (406.2–836.8) vs 458.2 (356.8–755.6), P?=?0.023]. Compared to controls, subjects in CAD group and DM group exhibited significantly lower cholesterol efflux capacity [CAD: 14.58?±?2.06 vs 12.51?±?2.83%, P?<?0.0001; DM: 13.62?±?2.57 vs 12.34?±?3.16%, P?=?0.0099]. ANGPTL8 was inversely correlated with cholesterol efflux capacity (r?=???0.188, P?<?0.01). Regression analysis revealed that plasma ANGPTL8 was an independent contributor to cholesterol efflux capacity (standardized β?=???0.143, P?=?0.023).




ANGPTL8 presents a negative effect on HDL-mediated cholesterol efflux capacity.
