Anti-PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) antibodies lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and significantly reduce cardiovascular end points.1 Safety concerns were raised as ultra-low levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol can be achieved. Low cholesterol levels are associated with an increased rate of...

A reversed-phase liquid chromatography-linear ion trap-Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometry method was developed for the profiling of lipids in human and mouse plasma. With the use of a fused-core C<sub>8</sub> column and a binary gradient, more than 160 lipids belonging to eight different classes were detected in a single...

Appetite suppressants may be one strategy in the fight against obesity. This study evaluated whether Korean pine nut free fatty acids (FFA) and triglycerides (TG) work as an appetite suppressant. Korean pine nut FFA were evaluated in STC-1 cell culture for their ability to increase cholecystokinin (CCK-8) secretion vs. several other dietary...

Here we describe a means to conditionally modify genes at a predefined and localized region of the vasculature using a perivascular drug delivery device (PDD). A 4-hydroxytamoxifen (4-OHT)-eluting PDD was applied around the carotid or femoral artery of a mouse strain carrying both the tamoxifen-inducible and smooth muscle cell (SMC)-specific Cre...

Adenovirus-mediated overexpression of human apolipoprotein E (apoE) induces hyperlipidemia by stimulating the VLDL-triglyceride (TG) production rate and inhibiting the LPL-mediated VLDL-TG hydrolysis rate. Because apoC-III is a strong inhibitor of TG hydrolysis, we questioned whether Apoc3 deficiency might prevent the hyperlipidemia induced by...

The fasting-induced adipose factor (FIAF, ANGPTL4, PGAR, HFARP) was previously identified as a novel adipocytokine that was up-regulated by fasting, by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonists, and by hypoxia. To further characterize FIAF, we studied regulation of FIAF mRNA and protein in liver and adipose cell lines as well as in...

Many epidemiological studies suggest that elevated plasma fibrinogen concentrations form one of the most important independent risk factors in blood for cardiovascular disease and particularly atherosclerosis in humans. To clarify the effect of genetic factors, diets and their interactions on plasma fibrinogen concentrations, we examined plasma...

The monomer triethyleneglycoldimethacrylate (TEGDMA) is used as a diluent in many resin-based dental materials. It was previously shown in vitro that TEGDMA was released into the adjacent biophase from such materials during the first days after placement. In this study, the uptake, distribution, and excretion of 14C-TEGDMA applied via gastric,...

Apolipoprotein (APO) E*3-Leiden mice with impaired chylomicron and VLDL (very low density lipoprotein) remnant metabolism display hyperlipidaemia and atherosclerosis. In the present study, these mice were used for testing the hypolipidaemic effect of two marketed agents, lovastatin (CAS 75330-75-5) and gemfibrozil (CAS 25812-30-0) as well as a...

In the present study we investigated whether age-related changes in the composition and functional properties of murine CD4+ T cells are reflected in vivo by a changed humoral response to influenza vaccine in aged mice. After the primary immunization, the titers of influenza-specific IgM, IgG1, IgG2a, and IgG2b, but not of IgG3 and IgE, were...

Fluorescent contact chemical allergens provoke sensitization after application on both syngeneic and allogeneic skin grafts in mice. We attempted to determine whether the functional activity in a contact sensitization response of human skin graft was affected at the level of antigen uptake and migration. After xenogeneic skin transplantation, we...

The function of apolipoprotein (apo) C1 in vivo is not well understood. From in vitro studies it has been reported that an excess of apoC1 relative to apoE inhibits receptor-mediated uptake of remnant lipoproteins. In order to gain a better understanding of the role of apoC1 in lipoprotein metabolism in vivo, we have generated apoC1-deficient...

Four types of adjuvants were evaluated as alternatives to the use of Freund's complete adjuvant in mice. The adjuvants evaluated included a water-in-oil emulsion (Specol), a microorganism (Lactobacillus), preformed immune-stimulating complexes (ISCOM) containing rabies virus glycoprotein and a saponin, Quil A. The adjuvants and saline were...

Two nucleic acid gel electrophoresis techniques were tested as a possible tool for analyzing junctional diversity in rearranged T cell receptor (TcR) sequences in order to define the extent of T cell heterogeneity. For this purpose denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) as well as non-denaturing gel electrophoresis (nDGE) techniques have...

Several mechanisms have been postulated to explain the relatively high immunogenicity of antigens presented in immune-stimulating complexes (iscom). Their potency can in part be explained by the specific targeting of these structures to cells presenting antigens to the immune system. However, until now no method for the subcellular detection of...

Germ cell mutagenesis was studied in male λlacZ transgenic mice in such a way that the data can be compared with literature data for germ cell mutagenesis obtained with the specific-locus test. This comparison is of interest for validation of the transgenic mouse model. We studied mutagenesis induced by ethylnitrosourea (ENU) in mature...
