We have previously identified the E3 ubiquitin ligase-inducible degrader of the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) (Idol) as a post-translational modulator of LDLR levels. Idol is a direct target for regulation by liver X receptors (LXRs), and its expression is responsive to cellular sterol status independent of the sterol-response element-binding(More)
Circulatory lipid transport in animals is mediated to a substantial extent by members of the large lipid transfer (LLT) protein (LLTP) superfamily. These proteins, including apolipoprotein B (apoB), bind lipids and constitute the structural basis for the assembly of lipoproteins. The current analyses of sequence data indicate that LLTPs are unique to(More)
High-density lipophorin (HDLp) in the circulation of insects is able to selectively deliver lipids to target tissues in a nonendocytic manner. In Locusta migratoria, a member of the LDL receptor family has been identified and shown to mediate endocytosis of HDLp in mammalian cells transfected with the cDNA of this receptor. This insect lipophorin receptor(More)
