Description of CVI Expertise

Etiology of HDL Cholesterol ("The Upenn High HDL Research Study")

Penn CVI Scientific Director for Translational / Clinical Research

CVI Program Unit Administrator (Director):
Prevention / Atherosclerosis / Lipids

Research Interests
The Rader laboratory is focused on two major themes: 1) novel pathways regulating lipid and lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis inspired by unbiased studies of human genetics; 2) factors regulating the structure and function of high density lipoproteins and the process of reverse cholesterol transport and their relationship to atherosclerosis. A variety of basic cell and molecular laboratory techniques, mouse models, and translational research approaches are used in addressing these questions.

Some examples of ongoing projects are:
1) The roles of sortilin (gene SORT1) and tribbles-1 (gene TRIB1) in lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis. Variants at the SORT1 locus are among the most strongly associated with LDL cholesterol and (coronary artery disease) in the human genome, and variants at the TRIB1 locus are significantly associated with all major plasma lipid traits and CAD. A variety of tissue-specific deleted mouse models, gene targeting in iPS cells with differentiation to hepatocytes, and cell biologic and biochemical approaches are being employed.

2) Functional genomics and mechanistic studies of a number of additional genes at loci significantly associated with lipid and metabolic traits, CAD, or other cardiovascular traits. Most of these genes harbor rare coding variants associated with these traits. In addition to elucidating fundamental mechanisms by which the protein influences relevant biology, the influence of specific mutations on protein structure and function are being explored.

3) Molecular regulation of HDLmetabolism and reverse cholesterol transport using cells, mice, and humans

4) Deep phenotyping of humans with low-frequency and rare variants in genes influencing lipid and cardiovascular traits, including the generation of iPS cells and differentiation to a variety of relevant cell types

The Etiology of HDL Cholesterol (“The Upenn High HDL Research Study”)



Name of Study: The Etiology of HDL Cholesterol (“The Upenn High HDL Research Study”)

Principal Investigator: Daniel J. Rader, MD

Subjects Enrolled: 2690 subjects in 1196 families as of January 28, 2013


What is HDL? The letters HDL stand for high density lipoprotein. It is known as the “good cholesterol” because a high HDL level can protect against heart disease and stroke.

Overview: The purpose of this study is to identify genes that are associated with HDL and influence coronary artery disease. Data from blood samples and health histories of individuals with high HDL levels and their family members are used to assess the relationship between these genes and HDL cholesterol. The long term goal of investigating these genes is the development of new therapies to prevent coronary artery disease.

A note to people who have already participated and their families: If you have already provided a blood sample for this study since 1998, thank you very much! Your help is invaluable. If you have high HDL cholesterol, we are asking that you speak to your relatives who have not yet participated. We are interested in receiving samples from your parents, children and siblings. If a participant’s child also participated, or plans to participate, we would also like to receive a sample from the child’s other parent.

If it is possible to receive samples that would give us samples from two parents and at least one child, whether you are the child or one of the parents, your family’s participation would be especially valuable and welcome.

A note to potential new participants: If you and your family have NOT participated in the study, but you have been told you have high HDL (for example you are a man with an HDL value above 75 mg/dL or a woman with an HDL above 90 mg/dL) you may also be eligible to participate.

What does participating in this study involve?


Participants are asked to provide a small blood sample and complete a short health questionnaire. We use the blood sample to measure cholesterol levels and to isolate DNA for the genetic research. DNA is the part of your blood sample that holds genetic information. Participants receive the results of their lipid panel (cholesterol results).

A participant can either:

Come to our research clinic at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for a brief visit to provide a blood sample.

OR

Receive by mail a kit containing all the necessary materials for the blood draw. The kit can be taken to a local laboratory or doctor’s office and the blood sample can then be shipped to us at our expense in packaging we provide. If a participant is charged for having blood drawn, we can reimburse the charge. We can also assist in finding a location for the blood draw.


Research Results



Research Results: The study has been recruiting participants since 1998, and the investigators have already made some significant findings using the data already collected.

A specific protein, endothelial lipase, breaks down HDL cholesterol particles. The following three articles used data from this study to explore the relationship between endothelial lipase and HDL:

Shortly after the initial discovery of the endothelial lipase gene, we sequenced the gene in subjects with high HDL levels. We identified six variants of endothelial lipase that may have contributed to the individuals' elevated HDL concentration.

We identified that healthy people with high HDL also have mutations in their endothelial lipase protein that makes the protein unable to break down HDL cholesterol particles. Our results suggest that new drugs that stop endothelial lipase from breaking down HDL cholesterol particles will increase HDL levels and may reduce heart disease. However, further studies on the effect of the endothelial lipase mutations in heart disease are needed.

We identified a version of the endothelial lipase that is present in some individuals of African descent that results in a person having lower levels of endothelial lipase protein and higher levels of HDL.

We developed a new statistical method to identify genes that interact with each other.  The Upenn High HDL Research Study was used to show how this new method works and identified the genes CETP and BCAT1 interacting with each other.

We collaborated with many different studies to study the genetics of plasma lipids in >100,000 individuals.  We identified 95 different regions of the human genome that contribute to determining levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides and showed genetic contributions to cholesterol levels in people of European, East Asian, South Asian, and African American ancestry.  This knowledge will help us to better understand the biology of cholesterol metabolism and identify new drug targets to prevent heart disease.
