Interactions between genetic variants and dietary lipid composition: effects on circulating LDL cholesterol in children

Ahola-Olli et al. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2014;100(6):1569-77

In this paper, researchers aimed to identify genetic variants that modify the variation in serum lipid response to dietary fat quality, involving 2 cohorts of healthy Finnish children.

Results indicate a possible interaction between PARK2 variants and dietary fat quality on serum LDL-cholesterol concentration.
