The present study aimed to investigate pathways that contribute to uptake and transcytosis of high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) and HDL-associated alpha-tocopherol (alpha TocH) across an in vitro model of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). In primary porcine brain capillary endothelial cells HDL-associated alpha TocH was taken up in 10-fold excess of HDL(More)
We previously reported that scavenger receptor class B, type I (SR-BI) mediates uptake of lipoprotein-associated cholesteryl ester and Vitamin E by porcine brain capillary endothelial cells (pBCECs). In the present study we investigated whether SR-BI is capable of mediating phosphatidylcholine (PC) uptake by pBCECs from low- and high density lipoproteins.(More)
