The hypothesis tested in this study was that cholesterol esterification by ACAT2 would increase cholesterol absorption efficiency… Expand Objectives—The enzyme acyl-coenzymeA (CoA):cholesterol O-acyltransferase 2 (ACAT2) in the liver synthesizes cholesteryl esters… Expand The process of cholesterol absorption has yet to be completely defined at the molecular level. Because of its ability to esterify… Expand The relative contributions of ACAT2 and LCAT to the cholesteryl ester (CE) content of VLDL and LDL were measured. ACAT2… Expand The inhibition of intracellular cholesterol esterification as a means to prevent atherosclerosis has been considered to have… Expand Acyl CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase 1 (ACAT1) and ACAT2 are enzymes responsible for the formation of cholesteryl esters in… Expand The capacity of acyl-CoA:cholesterol O-acyltransferase (ACAT) 2 to differentiate cholesterol from the plant sterol, sitosterol… Expand The importance of cholesterol ester synthesis by acyl CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) enzymes in intestinal and hepatic… Expand Two closely related enzymes with more than 50% sequence identity have been identified that catalyze the esterification of… Expand A second form of the enzyme acyl-CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase, ACAT2, has been identified. To explore the hypothesis that the… Expand
