Low Density Lipoprotein Binding and Uptake by Human and Rat Islet b Cells
Abnormalities in lipoprotein metabolism are common in diabetes. It is unknown whether variations in form or concentration of lipoproteins influence the function of pancreatic b cells. This studyExpand

The role of prostaglandins in endotoxin stimulated glycogenolysis in the liver
Endotoxins or lipopolysaccharides, which are derived from the cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria are thought to cause Gram-negative septic shock. Sepsis leads to an impairment of glucoseExpand

Rat liver Kupffer and endothelial cells express different binding proteins for modified low density lipoproteins. Kupffer cells express a 95-kDa membrane protein as a specific binding site for
Abstract The liver is the major organ responsible for the uptake of oxidized low density lipoproteins (Ox-LDL) from the blood circulation with Kupffer cells as major cellular uptake site. CandidateExpand

Recognition of lactoferrin and aminopeptidase M-modified lactoferrin by the liver: involvement of proteoglycans and the remnant receptor.
1. Lactoferrin and aminopeptidase M-modified lactoferrin (APM-lactoferrin; which lacks its 14 N-terminal amino acids) inhibit the liver uptake of lipoprotein remnant. In the present study, the roleExpand

Removal of Low-Density Lipoproteins by Alternative Pathways
A high plasma level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) increases the risk for atherosclerotic diseases [1, 2]. Any treatment to lower the plasma LDL level must either decrease the rate of LDLExpand

Interaction of the Reticuloendothelial System with Blood Lipid and Lipoprotein Metabolism
The RES, as defined by Aschoff (1924), comprises a wide variety of cell types with different origins and functions (van Furth et al., 1972). For example, the clearance of substances from theExpand

The catabolism of lipoprotein(a)
Abstract Background: Little is known of the catabolism of Lp(a). Although Lp(a) has been found to bind in vitro to numerous receptors, the relevance of these pathways has not been documented in vivo.Expand
