The effects of HDL1 lipoprotein infusion on biliary lipid secretion were studied in the in vitro model of rat perfused liver. A strong increase in bile flow was observed during and after lipoprotein infusion. This caused a significant rise in cholesterol, phospholipid and bile salt secretions. However, only the percentage of cholesterol increased with respect to the other bile lipids. The changes observed in the cholesterol/phospholipid molar ratio values of liver membrane subfractions (i.e., liver plasma membrane, mitochondria plus lysosomes and microsomes) isolated from the perfused rat liver after HDL1 administration were not significant.
