Regulation of hepatic receptor dependent degradation of low density lipo proteins by mevinolin in rabbits with hyper cholesterolemia induced by a wheat starch casein diet


, : Regulation of hepatic receptor dependent degradation of low density lipo proteins by mevinolin in rabbits with hyper cholesterolemia induced by a wheat starch casein diet. Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 754(2): 134-141

Rabbits fed a wheat starch-casein diet develop a marked hypercholesterolemia and have a slower rate of removal of rabbit 125I-labeled low density lipoproteins (LDL) from plasma. Treating rabbits with mevinolin, a highly potent competitive inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase, at a daily dose of 20 mg/animal prevents the increase in plasma and LDL cholesterol. The mevinolin effect is mediated through an increased rate of removal of rabbit 125I-labeled LDL from plasma. To study the role of mevinolin on the regulation of the hepatic LDL receptor in rabbits, the binding of 125I-labeled LDL and 125I-labeled .beta.-VLDL (.beta.-migrating very-low-density lipoproteins) to liver membranes prepared from rabbits fed the wheat starch-casein diet with or without mevinolin was investigated. Liver membranes from wheat starch-casein-fed rabbits have no demonstrable EDTA-sensitive binding activity of 125I-labeled LDL and low (37 ng/mg protein) binding activity of 125I-labeled .beta.-VLDL. Treatment of the wheat starch-casein fed rabbits with mevinolin results in high levels of specific EDTA-sensitive binding activity of 125I-labeled LDL (28.7 ng/mg protein) and 125I-labeled .beta.-VLDL (120 ng/mg protein). To assess the functional role of the hepatic LDL receptor in response to mevinolin, the catabolism of 125I-labeled LDL by perfused rabbit livers was studied. Perfused livers from mevinolin-treated rabbits show a 3.3-fold increase in the rate of receptor-dependent catabolism of 125I-labeled LDL (4.6% .cntdot. h-1) when compared with that of livers from rabbits not treated with mevinolin (1.4% .cntdot. h-1). Thus, mevinolin prevents the increase of plasma LDL cholesterol level in rabbits fed a wheat starch-casein diet by regulating the levels of hepatic LDL-binding sites and the rate of receptor-dependent catabolism of LDL by the liver.
