Such materials are peer reviewed and may be re-organized for online delivery, but are not copy-edited or typeset. Technical support issues arising from supporting information (other than missing files) should be addressed to the authors.


Figure S1. Chemical structure of xanthohumol.

Figure S2. Decreased cholesterol concentrations in VLDL fraction of XN-fed Ldlr-/- mice. Lipoprotein profile of pooled plasma samples from overnight fasted Ldlr-/- mice (n=4) fed WTD or WTD ± XN for 4 weeks.

Figure S3. Unchanged fractional cholesterol absorption. (A) Fractional cholesterol absorption in ApoE-/- mice (n=5) fed WTD ± XN for 4 weeks. (B) Lipid levels in jejunum of ApoE-/- mice (n=9) fed WTD ± XN for 8 weeks.

Figure S4. Quantitative real-time PCR analysis of hepatic genes involved in cholesterol transport. Female ApoE-/- mice were fed WTD ± XN for 8 weeks. Livers were excised and total RNA was isolated. Data are expressed as mean values (n=4) ±SD normalized to cyclophilin A.

Table S1. Reduced plasma cholesterol concentrations in XN-fed Ldlr-/- mice.
