The VLDL receptor, a newly identified lipoprotein receptor, has a domain structure homologous with the LDL receptor but has one additional cysteine rich repeat in the ligand binding domain. To study the regulation of the VLDL receptor in vivo, we administered 17 alpha-ethinyl estradiol to rabbits and examined its effects on VLDL receptor mRNA levels in the heart, one of the organs with highly expressed VLDL receptors, by RNA blotting. The ventricular level of VLDL receptor mRNA increased… CONTINUE READING
