Figure 2: Blood lipid profile of noninfected ( ) and L. major-infected ( ) apoE KO mice 6 weeks after the inoculation of 1 × 106 parasites (clone WHO MHOM/IL/80/Friedlin) into left footpad. (a) Total triacylglycerols; (b) total cholesterol; (c) high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; and (d) non-HDL cholesterol (sum of cholesterol in low density (LDL), intermediate density (IDL) lipoproteins, and remnant chylomicron), calculated as the difference between cholesterol and HDL cholesterol.
