Distinct effects of three bile salts on cholesterol solubilization by oleate-monoolein-bile salt micelles

Micellar cholesterol solubilities in bile salt-monoolein-oleic acid systems have been determined. Whatever the bile salt/oleyl compounds ratio, taurochenodeoxycholate solubilizes more cholesterol than taurocholate and much more than tauroursodeoxycholate. At pH 6.7, the cholesterol solubility limit is about the same with either oleate or monoolein. Cholesterol solubility falls in oleate-bile acid mixtures as the pH is raised. The capacity for supersaturation with cholesterol is greater for bile salt-monoolein than for bile salt-oleate micelles. For the latter it decreases as pH increases.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
