LPL activity plays an important role in preceding the VLDL remnant clearance via the three major apolipoprotein E (apoE)-recognizing receptors: the LDL receptor (LDLr), LDL receptor-related protein (LRP), and VLDL receptor (VLDLr). The aim of this study was to determine whether LPL activity is also important for VLDL remnant clearance...

Objective: Apolipoprotein CI (apoCI) is expressed in the liver and in macrophages, and has several roles in lipid metabolism. Since macrophage apoCI expression might affect macrophage lipid homeostasis and atherosclerotic lesion development locally in the arterial wall, we investigated the effect of both systemic and macrophage apoCI on...

The effect of monocyte/macrophage-derived wild-type mouse apolipoprotein E (apoE), human apoE3-Leiden, and human apoE2 on serum cholesterol levels and the development of atherosclerosis in apoE-deficient (apoe-/-) mice was investigated by using bone marrow transplantation (BMT). At 4 weeks after BMT, murine apoe+/+ bone marrow reduced serum...

Apolipoprotein E (apoE) is an important determinant for the uptake of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and emulsions by the liver, but the intracellular pathway of apoE following particle internalization is poorly defined. In the present study, we investigated whether retroendocytosis is a unique feature of apoE as compared with apoB by studying...

To investigate the quantitative requirement for apolipoprotein (apo) E in the clearance of lipoproteins via the non-low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor mediated pathway, human APOE was overexpressed at various levels in the livers of mice deficient for both the endogenous Apoe and Ldlr genes (Apoe-/- · Ldlr-/-) using adenovirus-mediated gene...

We have used adenovirus-mediated gene transfer in mice to investigate low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) and LDLR-related protein (LRP)- independent mechanisms that control the metabolism of chylomicron and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) remnants in vivo. Overexpression of receptor- associated protein (RAP) in mice that lack both LRP...

Urokinase-type plasminogen activator (u-PA) is used as a thrombolytic agent in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction. In vitro, recombinant single-chain u-PA (rscu-PA) expressed in E. coli is recognized by the Low-Density Lipoprotein Receptor-related Protein (LRP) on rat parenchymal liver cells. In this study we investigated the role of...

The fibrin-specific thrombolyticum tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) has proven to be a potent drug in several clinical trials, but its clinical application is complicated by the rapid clearance of t-PA from the circulation. The rapid plasma clearance of t-PA results from the uptake of t-PA in the liver. t-PA consists of several domains...

The interaction of 125I-labelled tissue-type plasminogen activator (125I-t-PA) with freshly isolated rat parenchymal and endothelial liver cells was studied. Binding experiments at 4°C with parenchymal cells and endothelial liver cells indicated the presence of 68000 and 44000 high-affinity t-PA-binding sites, with an apparent K(d) of 3.5 and 4...

The tissue-specific distribution of tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activator (t-PA and u-PA) and their inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) was analyzed at mRNA level in five major rat organ tissues. t-PA mRNA was detected in lung, kidney, heart, and liver. u-PA mRNA was detected in kidney and lung. Presence of PA mRNA correlated with the...

As shown by us previously (van Berkel et al. 1985. J. Biol. Chem. 260: 2694-2699 and van Berkel et al. 1985. J. Biol. Chem. 260: 12203-12207) the clearance of both low density lipoproteins (LDL) and high density lipoproteins (HDL) from the blood can be greatly enhanced by pretreatment of these lipoproteins with a tris-galactosylated cholesterol...
