A method was established for measuring membrane fluidity of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) by the excimer-forming lipid technique with pyrenedecanoic acid in flow cytometry. When cells were labeled, the use of 2-25 microM of pyrenedecanoic acid provided similar results. Neither the...

The lipid metabolism in cultured fibroblasts from multisystemic (type 3) lipid storage myopathy and controls has been studied through pulse-chase experiments using 1-pyrenedecanoic acid as precursor. The uptake of 1-pyrenedecanoic acid was not significantly different in multisystemic lipid storage myopathy...

The role of cholesterol content on monocyte biomechanics remains understudied despite the well-established link between cholesterol and monocytes/macrophages in atherosclerosis, and the effect on other cell types. In this work, we have investigated the effect of cholesterol on monocyte deformability...

Cholesterol is an important risk factor of atherosclerosis, due to its active uptake by monocytes/macrophages. Monocyte recruitment from flowing blood to atherosclerotic foci is the key first step in the development of atherosclerosis. Cholesterol content alters cell membrane stiffness, and...
