Figure 1. Impact of vitamin A on plasma lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity, hepatic LCAT and scavenger receptor class B1 (SR-B1) expression. (A) Plasma LCAT activity, represented as ratio of change in emission intensity at 490-370 nm. Higher ratio indicates lesser activity and vice versa, (B) Hepatic LCAT mRNA expression levels, (C) Representative Western blot showing hepatic SR-B1 protein levels and histogram represents the densitometric (arbitrary units) values of blot relative to stock diet-fed lean rats, (D) Hepatic SR-B1 mRNA expression levels. Data represent the means ± standard error of mean of 4-6 rats from each group. A-I, B-I-stock diet and A-II, B-II-vitamin A-enriched diet fed groups
