    • macrophage


      • positive cholesterol
        • It is likely that ABCA1 is the cAMP-inducible apolipoprotein receptor that promotes secretion of lipids from macrophages. [1]
        • There was an investigation whether ABCA1 expression is also responsible for the apoA-I-mediated cholesterol efflux induced by cAMP in macrophages and whether this involves direct binding of apoA-I to plasma membrane ABCA1. [1]
