Abstract: Cholesterol efflux from the plasma membrane to HDLs is essential for cell cholesterol homeostasis. Recently, cholesterol-enriched ordered membrane domains, i.e. lipid rafts have been proposed to play an important role in this process. Here we introduce a new method to investigate the role of HDL interactions with the raft lipid phase and to directly visualize the effects of HDL-induced cholesterol efflux on rafts in model membranes. Addition of HDLs to giant lipid vesicles containing raft-type domains promoted…
