Cholesterol membrane transporters scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI) and (cluster determinant 36) are involved in intestinal uptake of lutein and beta-carotene, 2 of the 3 main carotenoids of the human diet. The aim of this work was therefore to determine whether SR-BI and NPC1L1 (Niemann-Pick C1-like 1), another cholesterol transporter, are implicated in absorption of lycopene, the 3rd main carotenoid of the human diet. Anti-human SR-BI antibody and block lipid transport 1 (BLT1) (a… CONTINUE READING
