Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- apolipoprotein C-IV,
- Apolipoprotein C4,
APOC4, a member of the apolipoprotein C4 family, is a secreted lipid-binding protein purported to be involved in the metabolism of lipoproteins. Polymorphisms in this gene may influence circulating lipid levels and may be associated with coronary artery disease risk. This gene is present in a cluster with other related apolipoprotein genes on chromosome 19. APOC4 is expressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
