Lipoprotein, low density, oxidized, human plasma, 99%, BT-910

Chemical Properties



Oxidized LDL induces foam cell formation in some macrophage cell lines. Research on foam cell formation is relevant to the study of atherosclerosis. Cellular exposure to ox-LDL results is the formation of lipid droplets containing cholesteryl esters in the cytoplasm of the macrophage as the lipoprotein particles are metabolized by the cell.Lipoprotein, low density, oxidized, human plasma, is evaluated for receptor binding to peritoneal macrophages. Further, it is used to induce foam cell formation in macrophages.


Supplied at 2mg/ml in 1X phosphate-buffered saline at pH 7.4 and 0.3 mM EDTA. Contains gentamicin sulfate. Aseptically packaged and sterile filtered. Store at 4°C. Do not freeze. Short shelf life: up to 6 weeks. TBARS: 29-44 nmoles MDA/mg
