Characterization of sites with elevated LDL permeability at intercostal, celiac, and iliac branches of the normal rabbit aorta.

En face autoradiography of the endothelium was used to quantify the distribution, area, and permeability of sites with enhanced permeability to 125I-low-density lipoprotein (125I-LDL) around the intercostal and celiac arteries and at the iliac bifurcation of normal rabbit aortas. The density of such sites was highest in the upper thoracic aorta and around… CONTINUE READING
