We and others have shown that foam cell formation initiated by exposing macrophages to oxidized low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) triggers the differential expression of a number of proteins. Specifically, our experiments have identified peroxiredoxin I (Prx I) as one of these up-regulated proteins. The peroxiredoxins, a family of peroxidases initially(More)
The uptake of oxidized low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) by macrophages leads to foam cell formation and fatty streaks, which represent early sites of potential atheroma development. We developed a cell culture model of chronic oxLDL exposure to determine whether hallmark parameters of oxLDL uptake and cytotoxicity are altered during foam cell formation and(More)
