The synthesis of cholesteryl esters in cultured human fibroblasts is catalyzed by a microsomal acyl-coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.26). The acyltransferase activity is enhanced when fibroblasts take up cholesterol contained in plasma low density lipoprotein. In the current studies two steroids, SC-31769 (an analogue of 7-ketocholesterol)(More)
Several 5-aryl-3-methylvaleric acid derivatives have been shown to be more potent hypolipidemic agents than the previously reported 5-(4-biphenylyl)-3-methylvaleric acid (1). The most active compound in this series was 5-(4-phenylsulfonylphenyl)-3-methylvaleric acid (10) which lowered serum cholesterol levels 45% and serum triglyceride levels 60% in normal(More)
