Title: LDL receptor regulation in human liver cells by dietary fatty acids and antioxidants / Sebely Pal.
Author: Pal, Sebely
Issue Date: 1996
School/Discipline: Dept. of Animal Sciences
Abstract: Demonstrates that fatty acids and antioxidants can regulate the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor at the level of gene transcription in cultured liver cells. EPA and linoleic acid (PUFAs) are specifically shown to downregulate the LDL receptor compared to saturated and monosaturated fatty acids in the presence or absence of cholesterol. The experiments lead to the discovery that antioxidants can upregulate the LDL receptor in the human HepG2 cells.
