Toxicity of 7-ketocholesterol on lethality, growth, reproduction, and germline apoptosis in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.

Abstract

7-Ketocholesterol is one of the most abundant cholesterol oxides, and is known to be cytotoxic to various types of cultured mammalian cells; however, little is known regarding its effects in vivo. With the use of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans as model organism, in vivo toxicity of 7-ketocholesterol was investigated. The aim of the study was to examine… (More)
