BACKGROUND & AIMS Studies are aimed to determine the role of CD36 in intestinal lipid absorption. METHODS Knock-out (KO) and wild-type (WT) lymph fistula mice were used to study fatty acids (FA) and cholesterol uptake, and chylomicron formation and secretion. Uptake of FA and cholesterol was studied by using sucrose polybehenate and fecal dual isotope(More)
Chylomicrons produced by the human gut contain apolipoprotein (apo) B48, whereas very-low-density lipoproteins made by the liver contain apo B100. To study how these molecules function during lipid absorption, we examined the process as it occurs in apobec-1 knockout mice (able to produce only apo B100; KO) and in wild-type mice (of which the normally(More)
