Consequences of over-expression of rat Scavenger Receptor, SR-BI, in an adrenal cell model

Abstract

BACKGROUND The plasma membrane scavenger receptor, SR-BI, mediates the 'selective uptake' process by which cholesteryl esters (CE) from exogenously supplied HDL are taken up by target cells. Recent work suggests that dimer and higher order oligomeric forms of the SR-BI protein are important to this process. SR-BI has been shown to be particularly associated… (More)
