BACKGROUND AND AIM It has been shown that aspartate and glutamate inhibit mononuclear cell adhesion to the endothelium and formation of foam cells in the intima of thoracic aorta in cholesterol-fed rabbits. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether a high cholesterol diet supplemented with aspartate and glutamate may alter lipoproteins cholesterol and apolipoproteins A-1 and B levels in rabbits. METHODS AND RESULTS Serum total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein… CONTINUE READING
