Cholesterol Metabolism

Cholesterol is an essential lipid for mammalian cells and its homeostasis is tightly regulated. Disturbance of cellular cholesterol homeostasis is linked to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. A central role in the sensing and regulation of cholesterol homeostasis is attributed to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This can lead to atherosclerosis, vessel dysfunction and blocked blood flow, the underlying mechanism for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). CVDs include stroke, heart attack and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) among others.
