Cellular cholesterol flux studies: methodological considerations.


Reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) is the process in which peripheral cells release cholesterol to an extracellular acceptor such as high-density lipoprotein (HDL) which then mediates cholesterol delivery to the liver for excretion. RCT represents a physiological mechanism by which peripheral tissues are protected against excessive accumulation of… (More)
