Correlation between the cellular levels of SR-BI dimers and the functional efficiency of selective HDL-CE uptake. Appropriate Western blots from various cell types were scanned for SR-BI monomers and dimers and dimer/monomer ratios were plotted against the respective selective HDL-CE uptake data. The results show that dimer/monomer ratios determined for individual cell types correlate significantly with their respective SR-BI-mediated selective HDL-CE uptake.
