Abstract in Portuguese
A hipercolesterolemia familial (HF) é uma doença autossômica dominante considerada como uma das formas mais graves de hiperlipidemia, assim como, a principal causa de morbi-mortalidade por ser o principal fator desencadeante da aterosclerose. A alteração primária e mais freqüente da HF incide no gene do receptor da LDL (LDLr), sabe-se que mais de 1600 mutações são descritas na literatura e a principal consequência dessas alterações resultam no comprometimento da remoção da LDL, aumentando a concentração plasmática. Atualmente, o ultrasequenciamento genômico permite gerar muitos dados, que podem identificar novas mutações gênicas de forma eficiente, reprodutiva e rápida. No entanto, somente a validação da nova mutação por atividade funcional pode realmente estabelecer a associação com a doença. O presente estudo tem como objetivo realizar a análise da atividade do receptor da LDL, identificadas através do sequenciamento de alto rendimento, no gene LDLr realizado pelo nosso grupo de pesquisa e correlacionar com dados clínicos, in vitro, in silico e estrutural. Para cumprir esta meta, os linfócitos T dos portadores de HF foram isolados do sangue periférico, cultivados e submetidos a estímulo para a expressão de receptores da LDL, incubados com LDL marcada para avaliação de ligação e interiorização pelas células de cada paciente. Dos 30 pacientes selecionados para esse estudo, 63% apresentaram mutação no LDLR, sendo que quase todas as variantes (p.Gly373Asp, p.Asp601His, p.Ile488Thr, p.Gly549Asp, p.Gly592Glu e Gly681Asp) são localizadas no segundo domínio entre os éxons 7 ao 14. De acordo com o docking molecular a variante p.Gly592Glu (rs137929307), que já foi identificada na população polonesa, espanhola e brasileira, já relacionada com a HF, pode aumentar a interação do LDLr com a ApoB e consequentemente o modo de interação entre as proteínas, no estudo in vitro foi possível notar um aumento tanto na média de fluorescência da ligação e da ligação e interiorização em relação a quantidade de LDLr na superfície celular.

Abstract in English
Familial hypercholesterolemia (HF) is an autosomal dominant disease considered as one of the most severe forms of hyperlipidemia, as well as the main cause of morbidity and mortality because it is the main triggering factor for atherosclerosis. The primary and more frequent alteration of the HF affects the LDL receptor gene (LDLr), it is known that more than 1600 mutations are described in the literature and the main consequence of these alterations results in the compromise of the LDL removal, increasing the plasma concentration. Nowadays, genomic ultrasequencing allows the generation of many data, which can identify new gene mutations efficiently, reproductively and rapidly. However, only the validation of the new functional activity mutation can actually establish association with the disease. The aim of the present study was to analyze LDL receptor activity, identified by high-throughput sequencing, in the LDLr gene performed by our research group and to correlate with clinical, in vitro, in silico and structural data. To meet this goal, the T lymphocytes from the HF carriers were isolated from the peripheral blood, cultured and challenged for the expression of LDL receptors, incubated with labeled LDL for binding assessment and internalization by the cells of each patient. Of the 30 patients selected for this study, 63% had a mutation in LDLR, and almost all variants (p.Gly373Asp, p.Asp601His, p.Ile488Thr, p.Gly549Asp, p.Gly592Glu and Gly681Asp) are located in the second domain between exons 7 to 14. According to the molecular docking the variant p.Gly592Glu (rs137929307), which has already been identified in the Polish, Spanish and Brazilian population, already related to HF, can increase the interaction of LDLr with ApoB and consequently the mode of interaction between proteins, in the in vitro study it was possible to note an increase in both the mean fluorescence of binding and binding and internalization in relation to the amount of LDLr on the cell surface.
