We have studied the effects of endogenous and exogenous estrogen on atherosclerotic lesions in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice. Female mice ovariectomized (OVX) at weaning displayed increases (P < 0.01) in fatty streak lesions in the proximal aorta and aortic sinus compared with female mice with intact ovarian function. These differences between the OVX and(More)
We investigated the role of cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) in hamsters by using a monoclonal antibody (MAb) that inhibited hamster CETP activity. MAbs were prepared against partially purified human CETP and screened for inhibiton of 3H-cholesteryl oleate (CE) transfer from LDL to HDL in the presence of human plasma bottom fraction (d > 1.21(More)
The ability to measure the total concentration of low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptors in hepatic tissues is of crucial importance to understanding changes in hepatic cholesterol metabolism. Such measurements can be made in conjunction with estimates of LDL receptor transcriptional activity, cell surface LDL receptor number, and rates of hepatic LDL(More)
