The blood-brain barrier contributes to maintain brain cholesterol metabolism and protects this uniquely balanced system from exchange with plasma lipoprotein cholesterol. Brain capillary endothelial cells, representing a physiological barrier to the central nervous system, express apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I, the major high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-associated apolipoprotein), ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1), and scavenger receptor, class B, type I (SR-BI), proteins that promote cellular cholesterol mobilization. Liver X receptors (LXRs) and peroxisome-proliferator activated receptors (PPARs) are regulators of cholesterol transport, and activation of LXRs and PPARs has potential therapeutic implications for lipid-related neurodegenerative diseases. To clarify the functional impact of LXR/PPAR activation, sterol transport along the: (i) ABCA1/apoA-I and (ii) SR-BI/HDL pathway was investigated in primary, polarized brain capillary endothelial cells, an in vitro model of the blood-brain barrier. Activation of LXR (24(S)OH-cholesterol, TO901317), PPARalpha (bezafibrate, fenofibrate), and PPARgamma (troglitazone, pioglitazone) modulated expression of apoA-I, ABCA1, and SR-BI on mRNA and/or protein levels without compromising transendothelial electrical resistance or tight junction protein expression. LXR-agonists and troglitazone enhanced basolateral-to-apical cholesterol mobilization in the absence of exogenous sterol acceptors. Along with the induction of cell surface-located ABCA1, several agonists enhanced cholesterol mobilization in the presence of exogenous apoA-I, while efflux of 24(S)OH-cholesterol (the major brain cholesterol metabolite) in the presence of exogenous HDL remained unaffected. Summarizing, in cerebrovascular endothelial cells apoA-I, ABCA1, and SR-BI represent drug targets for LXR and PPAR-agonists to interfere with cholesterol homeostasis at the periphery of the central nervous system.
