The direct solubilization of cholesterol represents a promising, atheroprotective strategy to subside lipid blood levels and reverse atherosclerosis. This study deals with the in-depth analysis of polymer-mediated cholesterol dissolution inside living human cells. To this end, a recently described multifunctional block-polymer is labeled with Rhodamine B (RhoB) to investigate its interaction with cells via fluorescence microscopy. This gives insight into the cellular internalization process of the polymer, which appears to be clathrin- and caveolae/raft-dependent endocytosis. In cell single particle tracking reveals an active transport of RhoB polymer including structures. Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) measurements of cells treated with a fluorophore-tagged cholesterol derivative and the RhoB polymer indicates the uptake of cholesterol by the polymeric particles. Hence, these results present a first step toward possible applications of cholesterol-absorbing polymers for treating atherosclerosis.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dc:contributor>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Doll, Franziska</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Scheel, Patricia</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-06-27T13:52:46Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46167"/> <dcterms:issued>2019-06-21</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Doll, Franziska</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Keckeis, Philipp</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Scheel, Patricia</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
