The Strongest Genetic Cause Of Heart Disease - Lipoprotein(a ) | Dr David Sinclair Interview Clips



Published
Dr. David Sinclair talks about the strongest genetic cause of heart disease and cardiovascular disease – Lipoprotein(a).

Lp(a) is a lipoprotein made by the liver. Lipoproteins are parcels made of fat and protein. Their job is to carry fats (also called lipids) around the body in the blood.. It’s passed on in your genes.
Lp(a) is made of:
- a lipoprotein similar to LDL cholesterol
- plus two proteins known as ApoB and Apo(a).
Lipoprotein(a) is a lot like LDL cholesterol but it’s more ‘sticky’. If you have high levels of lipoprotein(a) in your blood, it can stick to your artery walls and clog them up, leading to heart disease and stroke at a young age.

David Sinclair is a professor in the Department of Genetics and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School, where he and his colleagues study sirtuins—protein-modifying enzymes that respond to changing NAD+ levels and to caloric restriction—as well as chromatin, energy metabolism, mitochondria, learning and memory, neurodegeneration, cancer, and cellular reprogramming.

Dr David Sinclair has suggested that aging is a disease—and that we may soon have the tools to put it into remission—and he has called for greater international attention to the social, economic and political and benefits of a world in which billions of people can live much longer and much healthier lives.

Dr David Sinclair is the co-founder of several biotechnology companies (Life Biosciences, Sirtris, Genocea, Cohbar, MetroBiotech, ArcBio, Liberty Biosecurity) and is on the boards of several others.
He is also co-founder and co-chief editor of the journal Aging. He is an inventor on 35 patents and has received more than 35 awards and honors. In 2014, he was on Time Magazine’s list of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” and listed as Time's Top 50 in healthcare in 2018.
