pEGFP-C3-CD36 limited OxLDL uptake, but not for pEGFP-N3-CD36. pEGFP-C3-CD36 and pEGFP-N3-CD36, as well as pEGFP-N3 alone were transit-transfected into CHO cells. After transfection for 48 hours, cells were rinsed twice with PBS and Dil-oxLDL at 10 μg/ml was incubated with the transfected cells for 1 hour. After rinsed for three times with PBS, cells were mounted on coverlids and observed under confocal microscope. Typical transfected and Dil-oxLDL was photographed. Dil-oxLDL was only weakly bound to pEGFP-C3-CD36 transfected cells.
