Abstract


Background

 

The aim of the study was to evaluate the correlation between angiopoietin-like protein 8 (ANGPTL8) and metabolic parameters in non-diabetic healthy humans.


Methods

 

We enrolled 30 healthy Japanese adults (25 men and five women). After 9 h of fasting, we collected blood samples and analyzed the ANGPTL8, lipoprotein lipase (LPL), plasma lipid and glucose metabolic parameters. In addition, we performed 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and measured adipokines (tumor necrosis factor-α, leptin and adiponectin).


Results

 

Median serum ANGPTL8 level was 224 (167 - 437) pg/mL, and serum ANGPTL8 level positively correlated with serum triglyceride level (r = 0.42, P = 0.021) and negatively correlated with LPL level (r = -0.44, P = 0.015). ANGPTL8 level showed no correlation with body mass index (BMI), waist-hip ratio, and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) or with adipose tissue-derived adiponectin and leptin levels. Further, ANGPTL8 showed no association with glucose and insulin levels after 75-g OGTT.


Conclusion

 

Serum ANGPTL8 level negatively correlated with LPL levels in healthy Japanese adults. Regulation of ANGPTL8 could be a promising therapeutic target for hypertriglyceridemia.
