Kinetics and plasma concentrations of 26-hydroxycholesterol in baboons.


26-Hydroxycholesterol (26OHC), a major oxysterol in human blood, is believed to play an important role in reverse cholesterol transport, bile acid formation, and regulation of various cellular processes. Using isotope dilution mass spectrometry, we measured plasma 26OHC concentrations in baboons fed either a high cholesterol/saturated fat (HC-SF) or normal… (More)
