OBJECTIVE Uptake of modified low-density lipoprotein (LDL) by macrophages through scavenger receptors results in lipid droplets accumulation and foam cell formation. Excess lipid deposition in macrophages has been reported to modulate expression of several genes including adipophilin. In this study, we investigated the function of adipophilin in lipid(More)
OBJECTIVE Cholesterol accumulation in macrophages is known to alter macrophage biology. In this article we studied the impact of macrophage cholesterol loading on gene expression and identified a novel gene implicated in cell death. METHODS AND RESULTS The regulated in development and DNA damage response 2 (REDD2) gene was strongly upregulated as THP-1(More)
