  • Official Full Name

    apolipoprotein C-II

  • Overview

    This gene encodes a lipid-binding protein belonging to the apolipoprotein gene family. The protein is secreted in plasma where it is a component of very low density lipoprotein. This protein activates the enzyme lipoprotein lipase, which hydrolyzes triglycerides and thus provides free fatty acids for cells. Mutations in this gene cause hyperlipoproteinemia type IB, characterized by hypertriglyceridemia, xanthomas, and increased risk of pancreatitis and early atherosclerosis. This gene is present in a cluster with other related apolipoprotein genes on chromosome 19. Naturally occurring read-through transcription exists between this gene and the neighboring upstream apolipoprotein C-IV (APOC4) gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]

High-fat diets and excessive consumption of saturated fats are known to influence APOC2 protein activity and triglyceride levels in the body.

Can APOC2 protein be targeted for therapeutic interventions? 05/24/2022

Yes, targeting APOC2 protein has been explored as a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia and related disorders. Inhibitors or modulators of APOC2 protein activity are currently under investigation.

Are there any known natural compounds or supplements that can influence APOC2 protein function? 03/28/2022

Some natural compounds, such as omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols found in certain foods, have been reported to modulate APOC2 protein activity and lipid metabolism. However, more research is required to fully understand their effects and establish appropriate dosage recommendations.

Are there any known drugs or medications that target APOC2 protein? 12/10/2021

Currently, there are no medications specifically approved for targeting APOC2 protein. However, certain lipid-lowering medications, such as fibrates and omega-3 fatty acid supplements, indirectly affect APOC2 protein activity by modulating lipid metabolism.

Can APOC2 protein levels be measured in the blood? 09/29/2020

Yes, APOC2 protein levels can be measured in blood samples using immunoassays.

Are there any genetic tests available to screen for APOC2 gene mutations? 03/13/2020

Yes, genetic tests can be used to screen for mutations in the APOC2 gene, particularly in individuals with a family history of lipid metabolism disorders. These tests can help identify individuals at risk and guide treatment options.

Is there ongoing research on APOC2 and its potential therapeutic applications? 02/06/2020

Yes, researchers are studying the role of APOC2 in lipid metabolism disorders and exploring potential therapeutic strategies targeting this protein. Additionally, some studies are investigating the use of APOC2-modulating therapies for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia.

Can APOC2 protein levels be used as a biomarker for cardiovascular diseases? 09/05/2019

APOC2 protein levels have been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, particularly hypertriglyceridemia-associated conditions. However, further research is needed to establish its utility as a reliable biomarker.

Does the APOC2 protein have any other biological functions apart from lipid metabolism? 08/31/2019

Apart from its role in lipid metabolism, the APOC2 protein has been implicated in inflammation, immune response, and cell proliferation processes, although further research is needed to fully understand these functions.

Are there any support groups or resources available for individuals and families affected by APOC2-related disorders? 10/25/2017

There are several support groups and resources available for individuals and families affected by lipid metabolism disorders, including those associated with APOC2 abnormalities. These organizations provide information, advocacy, and support to help individuals navigate their conditions. Examples include the National Lipid Association and the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD).

How is the APOC2 protein produced in the body? 09/12/2017

The APOC2 protein is synthesized in the liver and intestine.

Are there any known interactions or associations of APOC2 protein with other proteins or molecules? 06/11/2017

APOC2 protein interacts with various proteins and lipoproteins, including apolipoprotein C-III (APOC3) and apolipoprotein E (APOE), to regulate lipid metabolism and transport.

Can lifestyle modifications, such as diet and exercise, help manage APOC2-related disorders? 07/21/2016

Yes, lifestyle modifications, including a healthy diet and regular physical activity, play a crucial role in managing APOC2-related disorders. These interventions can help control lipid levels and improve overall cardiovascular health. However, they may not be sufficient as standalone treatments, and medical interventions may be necessary in some cases.

How prevalent are APOC2 gene mutations in the general population? 07/13/2016

APOC2 gene mutations are relatively rare in the general population. They are typically inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, meaning that individuals need to inherit mutated copies of the APOC2 gene from both parents to develop the associated disorders.
