Identification of a receptor mediating absorption of dietary cholesterol in the intestine.
Here we show that scavenger receptor class B type I is present in the small-intestine brush border membrane where it facilitates the uptake of dietary cholesterol from either bile salt micelles orExpand

Class B scavenger receptor-mediated intestinal absorption of dietary beta-carotene and cholesterol.
There is now a general consensus that the intestinal absorption of water-insoluble, dietary lipids is protein-mediated, but the assignment of protein(s) to this function is still a matter of debate.Expand

Role of scavenger receptors SR-BI and CD36 in selective sterol uptake in the small intestine.
The serum lipoprotein high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which is a ligand of scavenger receptors such as scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI) and cluster determinant 36 (CD36), can act as a donorExpand

Structure of sterol carrier protein 2 at 1.8 A resolution reveals a hydrophobic tunnel suitable for lipid binding.
Sterol carrier protein 2, also known as nonspecific lipid transfer protein is a ubiquitous, small, basic protein of 13 kDa found in animals. Its primary structure is highly conserved betweenExpand

Asymmetric distribution of phospholipids in the inner membrane of beef heart mitochondria.
The transversal distribution of phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and cardiolipin in the inner membrane of beef heart mitochondria was investigated. Highly purified “right-side-out”Expand

The structure, physical and chemical properties of the soy bean protein glycinin.
The major storage protein of the soybean, glycinin, has been prepared in a homogeneous form and examined by a variety of techniques. It has been found that the protein has a molecular weight ofExpand

Interactions of metal ions with phosphatidylserine bilayer membranes: effect of hydrocarbon chain unsaturation.
A combination of surface monolayer, scanning calorimetry, 31P NMR, and spin-label ESR techniques has been used to monitor the interactions of monovalent (NH4+, Na+, and Li+) and divalent (Ca2+)Expand

Rabbit small intestinal brush border membrane preparation and lipid composition.
1. Rabbit intestinal brush border membrane vesicles were prepared either from frozen or fresh tissue and the lipid composition was analysed. 2. Lipids extracted from membranes prepared by theExpand
