Method for modulating inflammatory responses
Invention Summary:Cholesterol is a major component of lipid rafts, which are sphingolipid-enriched planar domains of the cell membrane. Rafts play key roles in a variety of the cell signals processes including calcium entry into cells, which activates white blood cells and causes inflammation. Many inflammatory cell responses are tightly controlled...
