Background: Millet has been consumed as human food in the countries ofAsia and Africa. We reported previously the effects of dietary protein concentrates from proso millet(Panicum miliaceum L.) on plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein HDL cholesterol. Of note is thatof these HDL subfractions, HDL[sub]2[/sub] particles may have the more strongly protective effect against therisk of coronary heart disease than HDL[sub]3[/sub]. However, it is unclear how dietary millet protein affectsplasma levels of HDL subfractions. Material/Methods: We examined the effect of feeding of proso-milletprotein concentrate (PMPC) for 21 days on plasma levels of HDL cholesterol, HDL subfractions and lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activities in rats. Results: Results showed a clear elevation of plasmalevels of HDL cholesterol (p
