Expression and regulation of scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI) in gall bladder epithelium.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Biliary lipid absorption by the gall bladder mucosa and the cholesterol content of the gall bladder wall appear to play a role in cholesterol gall stone formation. As the scavenger receptor class B type I (SR- BI) regulates cellular cholesterol uptake, we studied its expression in human and murine gall bladders, its regulation by… (More)
