  • Detect cholesterol uptake within cultured cells by flow cytometry or plate reader
  • Employs NBD cholesterol, a fluorescently-tagged cholesterol
  • An inhibitor of cholesterol trafficking is included as a positive control
  • The kit provides enough NBD cholesterol to test 250 samples

Maintaining body cholesterol homeostasis is critical for normal physiological functions and is achieved by a highly regulated balance of de novo synthesis, dietary cholesterol absorption, biliary clearance, and excretion. However, the mechanisms controlling cholesterol absorption are not well understood. A better understanding of the relationship between cholesterol absorption and synthesis may allow for the development of powerful novel strategies for the prevention and treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Cayman’s Cholesterol Uptake Cell-Based Assay Kit provides a convenient tool for studying cholesterol absorption modulators. The kit employs NBD Cholesterol, a fluorescently-tagged cholesterol, as a probe for the detection of cholesterol taken up by cultured cells. U-18666A, a cholesterol intracellular trafficking inhibitor, is included as a positive control.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.
