6-O-α-maltosyl-β cyclodextrin (Mal-βCD) is a cellular cholesterol modifier which can form soluble inclusion complex with cholesterol and is much less cytotoxic to human erythrocytes and Caco-2 cells; a cyclodextrin derivative.
Mal-βCD removes cellular cholesterol forming inclusion complexes, while Mal-βCD-induced lack of cellular cholesterol was replenished by the addition of CLM without cytotoxicity. Cholesterol reduction by Mal-βCD abolishes the mRNA and protein expression of ABCA1 and ABCG1, but not of P-gp.
