Atherogenic lipoproteins inhibit catecholamine secretion in cultured bovine adrenal medullary cells


The effects of lipoproteins on ion channel-mediated catecholamine secretion were investigated in cultured bovine adrenal medullary cells. Low density lipoprotein (LDL; 20–80 mg/dl) and lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a); 10–80 mg/dl] inhibited catecholamine secretion induced by carbachol, an activator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor-ion channels. LDL and Lp(a… (More)
