Liver parenchymal cells play a dominant role in hepatic metabolism and thereby total body cholesterol homeostasis. To gain insight into the specific pathways and genes involved in the response of liver parenchymal cells to increased dietary lipid levels under atherogenic conditions, changes in parenchymal cell gene expression upon feeding a Western-type(More)
Impaired scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI)-mediated uptake of HDL-cholesterol esters (HDL-CE) induces adrenal insufficiency in mice. Humans contain an alternative route of HDL-CE clearance, namely through the transfer by cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) to apolipoprotein B lipoproteins for subsequent uptake via the LDL receptor. In this(More)
In order to form distant metastases, cells from the primary tumor have to detach, enter the blood- or lymph-compartment and escape immune surveillance. Here, we describe the selection of rat colon carcinoma cell lines (CC531s-m1 and CC531s-m2) that escaped from systemic immune surveillance; CC531s cells were injected into the v. jugularis of Wag/Rij rats,(More)
Background: According to the EU-chemicals policy (REACH), the murine Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA) is the firstchoice method for in vivo testing of skin sensitization properties. Compounds inducing lymphocyte proliferation in lymph nodes draining the site of topical exposure are regarded as sensitizers in the traditional LLNA. However, some nonsensitizing(More)
