Antioxidant and cytoprotective properties of high-density lipoproteins in vascular cells.
Beside their key role in the regulation of cholesterol homeostasis, HDL exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that participate to their general antiatherogenic effect. The purpose ofExpand

Effect of Aluminium on Lipid Peroxidation of Human High Density Lipoproteins
We investigated the effect of aluminium (Al 3+ ) on lipid peroxidation and physico-chemical properties of high density lipoproteins (HDL) isolated from human plasma. Our results demonstrated that AlExpand

Structural modifications of HDL and functional consequences.
High density lipoproteins (HDL) are susceptible to structural modifications mediated by various mechanisms including oxidation, glycation, homocysteinylation or enzymatic degradation. StructuralExpand

Reduced Na+ -K+ -ATPase Activity and Plasma Lysophosphatidylcholine Concentrations in Diabetic Patients
A fraction from normal human plasma inhibiting Na+ -K+ ATPase has been recently identified as lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC). The aim of this study was to investigate the existence of a relationshipExpand

Antioxidant properties of HDL in transgenic mice overexpressing human apolipoprotein A-II.
Transgenic mice overexpressing human apolipoprotein A-II (huapoA-II) display high VLDL and low HDL levels. To evaluate the antioxidant potential of huapoA-II enriched HDL, we measured the activitiesExpand

Influence of low density lipoprotein from insulin-dependent diabetic patients on platelet functions.
In the present work we studied in vitro the action of low density lipoproteins (LDL) isolated from normolipemic insulin-dependent diabetic (IDDM) patients on transmembrane cation transport, nitricExpand

Increased susceptibility to lipid oxidation of low-density lipoproteins and erythrocyte membranes from diabetic patients.
The aim of the present study was to determine if low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) and red blood cell (RBC) membranes from diabetic patients present an increased susceptibility to lipoperoxidation,Expand

Fluorescence analysis of lipoprotein peroxidation.
Publisher Summary Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) can be oxidized by transition metals, by cells including endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, monocytes, macrophages, and fibroblasts, and also byExpand

Lipoprotein peroxidation in adult psoriatic patients.
Psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by an aberration of lipid metabolism, has been associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis. Since oxidatively modifiedExpand

Effect of aluminium ions on liposomal membranes as detected by Laurdan fluorescence.
We report here an investigation of the influence of aluminium on iron-induced peroxidation in brain model membranes. Laurdan fluorescence emission spectra and generalised polarisation measurementsExpand
