Tea catechins inhibit cholesterol oxidation accompanying oxidation of low density lipoprotein in vitro.
GTC, especially ECG and EGCG, seem to inhibit cholesterol oxidation in LDL by combination of interference with PUFA oxidation, the reduction and scavenging of copper ion, hydroxyl radical generated from peroxidation of PUFA and superoxide anion. Expand
Effect of red yeast rice on toxicity of oxidized cholesterol and oxidized fish oil in rats
It was found that red yeast rice may play an important role in suppressing and a good recovering on short-term preventing effect from the toxicity of oxidized cholesterol and oxidized fish oil-induced toxicity in rats. Expand
Biological effects of oxysterols: current status.
The authors find that OS deserve much more attention than cholesterol itself in terms of research activity but that unfortunately the reverse is true with regard to funding. Expand
Effects of Various Cooking and Re-heating Methods on Cholesterol Oxidation Products of Beef Loin
The objective of this study was to define the effects of various cooking and re-heating methods (pan roasting, steaming, oven grilling and micro-waving) on the cholesterol and formation ofExpand
Alcohol Enhances Oxysterol-Induced Apoptosis in Human Endothelial Cells by a Calcium-Dependent Mechanism
It is described for the first time a mechanistic concept explaining possible adverse effects of alcohol in conjunction with physiologically occurring oxysterols on atherogenesis, which did cause a dramatic increase in cytosolic calcium influx. Expand
Ezetimibe inhibits the incorporation of dietary oxidized cholesterol into lipoproteins Published, JLR Papers in Press, August 7, 2006.
Ezetimibe, a drug that inhibits small intestinal absorption of cholesterol, markedly reduced the levels of oxidized cholesterol in the serum after feeding a test meal containing either α-epoxy cholesterol or 7-keto cholesterol, two of the predominant oxidized cholesterols found in the diet. Expand
Effects of dietary protein type on oxidized cholesterol-induced alteration in age-related modulation of lipid metabolism and indices of immune function in rats.
It is shown that oxidized cholesterol-induced perturbations of age-related changes of lipid metabolism and immune function can be moderated by both the selection and combination of dietary protein. Expand
Formation of cholesterol oxidation products (COPs) in animal products
The cholesterol oxidation products (COPs) are related to processing temperature, heating time, storage conditions, level of activator present, packaging and most of the COPs found in foods wereExpand
Characterization of cholesterol oxidation products formed by oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein.
It appears that a subpopulation of LDL rapidly converts to LDL-, representing a mildly oxidized but oxidant sensitive LDL population. Expand
Modulation of cholestan-3β,5α,6β-triol toxicity by butylated hydroxytoluene, α-tocopherol and β-carotene in newborn rat kidney cells in vitro
It is suggested that addition of exogenous antioxidants may be beneficial in the prevention of COP-induced toxicity in vitro. Expand
