Two apolipoprotein E mimetic peptides with similar cholesterol reducing properties exhibit differential atheroprotective effects in LDL-R null mice.


OBJECTIVE We investigated two apoE mimetic peptides with similar long-term plasma cholesterol reducing abilities for their effects on atherosclerotic lesions in Western diet-fed female LDL-receptor (LDL-R) null mice. METHODS AND RESULTS Single doses of peptides Ac-hE18A-NH(2) and mR18L were administered retro-orbitally to LDL-R null mice on Western diet… (More)
