Hypercholesterolemia: Disease Bioinformatics

Hypercholesterolemia (also known as high cholesterol) occurs when abnormally high levels of certain types of cholesterol are in the blood (>5.2 mmol/L). This increase of cholesterol can cause plaque buildup in the artery walls, inevitably causing damage to organs and tissues when blood flow is restricted. Borderline hypercholesterolemia is defined when levels are between 200-239 mg/dL. Hypercholesterolemia is significantly correlated with increased incidence and risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke. Risk is increased with smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and poor exercise in combination with a poor diet. Nonfamilial hypercholesterolemia is the most common form as it is present in people with a susceptible genotype that is aggravated by excessive amounts of saturated fats and cholesterol. Familial hypercholesterolemia is a genetic disorder that is inherited, making prevalence within a family approximately 50%. Treatments focus on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease by decreasing blood cholesterol levels. Medications may be diagnosed to help with this process.

NBP1-78159
Western Blot: LDL R Antibody (C7) [NBP1-78159] - Total protein from human HeLa and HepG2 cells was separated on a 7.5% gel by SDS-PAGE, transferred to PVDF membrane and blocked in 5% non-fat milk in TBST. The membrane was probed with 0.5 ug/mL anti-LDL receptor in 1% non-fat milk in TBST and detected with an anti-mouse HRP secondary antibody using chemiluminescence.Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence: LDL R Antibody (C7) [NBP1-78159] -  Image from a customer review on porcine intestinal epithelial cells IPEC-J2.

Western Blot: Insulin Antibody (E2-E3 (same as INS04)) [NBP2-34260] - Probing of Western blots of pancreatic lysates from control and iron overloaded Tg40 PrP and PrP-/- mice with antibodies specific for insulin dimer and pentamer (upper and lower panels) shows decreased expression in Tg40 PrP relative to PrP-/- samples (lanes 1 & 5 vs. 3 & 7). Image collected and cropped by CiteAb from the following publication (nature.com/articles/s41598-018-24786-1), licensed under a CC-BY licence.Immunohistochemistry: Insulin Antibody (E2-E3 (same as INS04)) [NBP2-34260] - Immunohistochemistry of pancreas shows relatively higher reactivity for insulin in PrP-/- relative to Tg40 PrP sections (panels 1 & 3). Iron overloading decreases insulin reactivity in Tg40 PrP but not in PrP-/- samples (panels 1 vs. 2 & 3 vs. 4). Reaction for glucagon is higher in iron overloaded Tg40 PrP relative to control samples (panels 5 & 6). The difference is minimal in PrP-/- samples (panels 7 & 8).
