FH

In numismatics, an abbreviation meaning "full head." It is used to describe Standing Liberty quarters on which the head of Lady Liberty it visible in full detail. This is unusual even among some uncirculated Standing Liberty quarters and may positively affect the value.

The expression levels of LDLR and SCARB are closely associated with formation of foam cells and AS by uptake of LDL and Ox-LDL, resulting in a large amount of lipid accumulation in cells.
By site-directed mutagenesis or analysis of naturally occurring variants in patients with type III hyperlipoproteinemia, we demonstrated that residues 136 (Arg), 140 (His), 142 (Arg), 143 (Lys), 145 (Arg), 146 (Lys), 147 (Arg), and 150 (Arg) mediate the interaction with the LDLR by interacting with negatively charged residues in the LDLR.
Binding of LDLs to the LDLR is mediated by interactions between the LDLR and the Apo B-100 lipoprotein.
LDLR is an excellent gene for candidate SNP studies because LDLR mutations are a primary case of familial hypercholesterolemia, suggesting that other gene products do not compensate effectively for reduced LDLR function (Pullinger et al.

The population from the North-West of Morocco could be different from other regions of the country, and therefore, previous studies may not be sufficient to describe the complete spectrum of LDLR gene mutations in this country.
Statins have their major impact in the liver by lowering cholesterol in hepatocytes, which leads to upregulation of the LDLR and increased removal of LDL from the plasma.
