Atherosclerosis involves a macrophage-rich inflammation in the aortic intima. It is increasingly recognized that this intimal inflammation is paralleled over time by a distinct inflammatory reaction in adjacent adventitia. Though cross talk between the coordinated inflammatory foci in the intima and the adventitia seems implicit, the mechanism(s) underlying(More)
5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO) catalyzes the initial steps in the formation of leukotrienes (LTs), which are implicated in immune reactions. Recently, it was shown that FITC-triggered epidermal Langerhans cell (LC) emigration to draining lymph nodes (LNs) is impaired in LTC4 export pump (multidrug resistance-associated protein 1)-deficient mice. Here, we sought(More)
