Direct effect of F12511, a systemic inhibitor of Acyl-CoA cholesterol acyltransferase on bovine aortic endothelial cells.


F12511(S)-2',3',5'-trimethyl-4'-hydroxy-alpha-dodecylthio-alpha-phenylacetanilide (F12511) is a new Acyl-CoA cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitor that not only reduces the plasma cholesterol levels but also has anti-atherosclerotic actions in animals models. The study's aim was to analyze if F12511 may directly modify the ability of tumor necrosis… (More)
