Scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI) mediates the selective transfer of cholesteryl ester from HDL to cells. We previously established that SR-BI overexpressed in livers of apolipoprotein A-I-deficient mice processes exogenous human HDL2 to incrementally smaller HDL particles. When mixed with normal mouse plasma either in vivo or ex vivo,(More)
The HDL receptor scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI) binds HDL and mediates the selective uptake of cholesteryl ester. We previously showed that remnants, produced when human HDL(2) is catabolized in mice overexpressing SR-BI, become incrementally smaller, ultimately consisting of small alpha-migrating particles, distinct from pre-beta HDL. When mixed(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the interaction of SAA and SR-BI in remodeling of acute phase HDL (AP HDL). METHODS AND RESULTS We used SAA and SR-BI adenoviral vector expression models to study the interaction between these entities. SR-BI processing of mouse AP HDL generated progressively smaller discreet HDL particles with(More)
