HDL-cholesterol-raising effect of orange juice in subjects with hypercholesterolemia.
BACKGROUND Orange juice-a rich source of vitamin C, folate, and flavonoids such as hesperidin-induces hypocholesterolemic responses in animals. OBJECTIVE We determined whether orange juiceExpand

Soy protein peptides regulate cholesterol homeostasis in Hep G2 cells.
The activation of LDL receptors was described recently in a human hepatoma cell line (Hep G2) exposed both to alpha + alpha' subunits from 7S soy globulin and to Croksoy(R)70, a commercialExpand

Modulation of hepG2 cell net apolipoprotein B secretion by the citrus polymethoxyflavone, tangeretin
The purpose of the present study was to examine the role of tangeretin, a polymethoxylated flavone from citrus fruits, on the regulation of apolipoprotein B (apoB) and lipid metabolism in the humanExpand

Soy consumption and cholesterol reduction: review of animal and human studies.
Animal proteins such as casein are more hypercholesterolemic than soy protein or other plant proteins when fed to rabbits in low-fat, cholesterol-free, semipurified diets. A casein-amino acid mixtureExpand

Hypolipidemic effects and absorption of citrus polymethoxylated flavones in hamsters with diet-induced hypercholesterolemia.
Formulations containing citrus polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs), mainly tangeretin, or citrus flavanone glucosides, hesperidin and naringin, were evaluated for cholesterol-lowering potential inExpand

Nobiletin, a citrus flavonoid isolated from tangerines, selectively inhibits class A scavenger receptor-mediated metabolism of acetylated LDL by mouse macrophages.
Flavonoids are a class of chemically related polyphenols that are nearly ubiquitous in nature. Of the more-than 4000 flavonoids thus identified, citrus fruit-derived flavonoids are suggested to haveExpand

Citrus polymethoxylated flavones improve lipid and glucose homeostasis and modulate adipocytokines in fructose-induced insulin resistant hamsters.
The present study was undertaken to determine whether supplementation with polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) could ameliorate the fructose-induced hypertriglyceridemia and other metabolicExpand
