[Article in Chinese]


Micellar liposomes were prepared by using Apo-AI from rabbit or tree shrew and dipalmitoylphosphatidyl choline (DPPC), with or without cholesterol through a rapid dialysis method. An obvious ability was noticed in clearing of 3H-cholesterol from the cultured smooth muscle cells (SMC) and a cross effect of Apo-AI originated from either rabbit's or tree shrew's serum on the clearance rate of 3H-cholesterol from the cultured SMC of these two species of animals was also obtained.
