Distribution of phospholipid transfer protein in human plasma: presence of two forms of phospholipid transfer protein, one catalytically active and the other inactive.
Plasma phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) plays an important role in the maintenance of plasma high-density lipoprotein (HDL) content and remodeling of HDL in the circulation. In the present studyExpand

Development of a highly sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for bisphenol A in serum.
4,4'-Isopropylidenediphenol, bisphenol A (BPA), was derivatized to BPA-carboxymethylether (BPA-CME), BPA-carboxypropylether (BPA-CPE) and BPA-carboxybutylether (BPA-CBE), and then linked to bovineExpand

Squalene synthase inhibitors reduce plasma triglyceride through a low-density lipoprotein receptor-independent mechanism.
Inhibitors of squalene synthase are considered to be candidate drugs to reduce both plasma cholesterol and triglyceride. However, little is known about the mechanism of squalene synthaseExpand

Subulatin, an Antioxidic Caffeic Acid Derivative Isolated from the In Vitro Cultured Liverworts, Jungermannia subulata, Lophocolea heterophylla, and Scapania parvitexta
The new caffeic acid derivative, subulatin (1), was isolated from in vitro cultured liverworts, Jungermannia subulata, Lophocolea heterophylla, and Scapania parvitexta. The structure of 1 involvedExpand

Effects of Intravenous Apolipoprotein A-I/Phosphatidylcholine Discs on LCAT, PLTP, and CETP in Plasma and Peripheral Lymph in Humans
Objective—We have previously shown that intravenous apolipoprotein A-I/phosphatidylcholine (apoA-I/PC) discs increase plasma pre-&bgr; HDL concentration and stimulate reverse cholesterol transportExpand

Effect of ER-27856, a novel squalene synthase inhibitor, on plasma cholesterol in rhesus monkeys: comparison with 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coa reductase inhibitors.
Squalene synthase (SQS; EC plays an important role in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway. We discovered ER-28448, 5-(N-[2-butenyl-3-(2-methoxyphenyl)]-N-methylamino)-1,Expand

Altered distribution of plasma PAF-AH between HDLs and other lipoproteins in hyperlipidemia and diabetes mellitus Published, JLR Papers in Press, July 16, 2003. DOI 10.1194/jlr.D300021-JLR200
Platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) is a phospholipase A2 associated with lipoproteins that hydrolyzes platelet-activating factor (PAF) and oxidized phospholipids. We have developedExpand

Distribution of human plasma PLTP mass and activity in hypo- and hyperalphalipoproteinemia DOI 10.1194/jlr.M100349-JLR200
Plasma phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) plays an important role in lipoprotein metabolism and reverse cholesterol transport. We have recently reported that plasma PLTP concentration correlatesExpand

Characteristics of the Biotin Enhancement of Glucose-induced Insulin Release in Pancreatic Islets of the Rat
Perifused isolated rat islets were used to show that biotin plus 16.5 mM glucose evoked more insulin secretion than 16.5 mM glucose alone. Whether or not this reinforcement of glucose-induced insulinExpand

Association of coronary heart disease with pre-beta-HDL concentrations in Japanese men.
BACKGROUND In individuals heterozygous for ABCA1 transporter mutations, defective reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) causes low HDL-cholesterol and premature coronary heart disease (CHD). However,Expand
