We investigated the role of HDL-associated paraoxonase 1 (PON1) in HDL-mediated macrophage cholesterol efflux by using HDL derived from wild type mice (Control-HDL), from human PON1-transgenic mice(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether paraoxonases (PONs) are expressed in macrophages and to analyze the oxidative stress effect on their expression and activities. METHODS AND RESULTS We demonstrated(More)
High density lipoprotein (HDL)-associated paraoxonase-1 (PON1) anti-atherogenic properties in macrophages, i.e. inhibition of cell-mediated oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) and stimulation(More)
OBJECTIVE The parasympathetic nervous system regulates inflammation in peripheral tissues through a pathway termed the "cholinergic anti-inflammatory reflex" (CAIR). Mice deficient in the alpha 7(More)
