The aim of this study was to determine serum lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity in parallel with HDL2 and HDL3 amounts and composition in pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) and chronic hypertensive (CH) mothers and in their small for gestational age (SGA) newborns. LCAT activity was assayed by conversion of [3H] cholesterol to labelled cholesteryl ester. HDL2 and HDL3 were separated by ultracentrifugation. At term, cholesterol values were similar in PIH, CH and controls. However, higher levels of triglycerides were observed in PIH and CH (+20% and +21%, respectively) as compared with normotensive control mothers (NC). HDL2 and HDL3-phospholipids, HDL2-cholesterol concentrations and LCAT activity were lower in PIH and CH mothers than in NC mothers. Similar changes were also observed in SGA newborns of PHI mothers and in SGA newborns of CH mothers when compared to appropriate for gestational age newborns of control mothers (AGA-NC). In addition, SGA newborns showed low HDL2 and HDL3 apoA-I contents. Maternal hypertension and foetal intrauterine growth retardation are associated with profound abnormalities in HDL metabolism, consistent with an atherogenic risk. SGA lipoprotein profiles appear to implicate later metabolic diseases.
