Cholesterol efflux from the peripheral tissues and cells in atherosclerotic plaque is an initial and critical step in Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT). RCT is the process by which extrahepatic cells, including macrophage-derived foam cells in arterial atherosclerotic plaque, transport excessive cholesterol back to the liver for bile acid synthesis and excretion, thus lowering the peripheral lipid burden. A negative correlation has been established between the in vitro efflux of cholesterol from macrophages and atherosclerosis. BioVision’s Cholesterol Efflux Assay is a high-throughput screening assay for measuring cholesterol efflux in cells using fluorescently-labeled cholesterol. This assay provides a safe, sensitive, and reproducible method for measuring cholesterol efflux. BioVision charges an Ice pack and Insulated Container fee of $25.00 for each order.
