The ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) encodes a membrane protein that promotes cholesterol and phospholipid efflux from cells. Mutations in ABCA1 lead to HDL deficiency and tissue accumulation of macrophages in patients with homozygous Tangier disease. In this study, we examined whether the complete absence of ABCA1 or selected inactivation in(More)
OBJECTIVE Studies in bone marrow transplanted from ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1)-deficient mice into normal mice provides direct evidence that the absence of leukocyte ABCA1 exerts a marked proatherogenic effect independent of changes in plasma lipids, suggesting that ABCA1 plays a key role in the regulation of cholesterol homeostasis and(More)
Antibodies targeting IL-17A or its receptor IL-17RA show unprecedented efficacy in the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis. These therapies, by neutralizing critical mediators of immunity, may increase susceptibility to infections. Here, we compared the effect of antibodies neutralizing IL-17A, IL-17F or TNFα on murine host responses to(More)
