Uptake of dolichol by Vero cells.

Characterization and kinetics of dolichol uptake by a Vero cell line are reported. Vero cells incorporate dolichol in a time- and dose-dependent manner. Optimal uptake is found at 37 degrees C and at a pH of 7.4. In contrast to cholesterol, an inhibitory effect on the dolichol incorporation is found for farnesol, geraniol, and retinol.
