A role for macrophage scavenger receptors in atherosclerosis and susceptibility to infection
Macrophage type-I and type-II class-A scavenger receptors (MSR-A) are implicated in the pathological deposition of cholesterol during atherogenesis as a result of receptor-mediated uptake of modifiedExpand

Modification of low density lipoprotein by endothelial cells involves lipid peroxidation and degradation of low density lipoprotein phospholipids.
Low density lipoprotein (LDL) incubated with cultured endothelial cells from rabbit aorta or human umbilical vein is altered in several ways (EC-modified): (i) It is degraded by macrophages muchExpand

Cloning of monoclonal autoantibodies to epitopes of oxidized lipoproteins from apolipoprotein E-deficient mice. Demonstration of epitopes of oxidized low density lipoprotein in human plasma.
Many reactive products may be formed when LDL undergoes lipid peroxidation, which in turn can react with lipids, apoproteins, and proteins, generating immunogenic neoepitopes. AutoantibodiesExpand

The canadian multicenter double‐blind randomized controlled trial of ursodeoxycholic acid in primary biliary cirrhosis
Ursodeoxycholic acid, a dihydroxyl bile acid normally present in human beings in minimal amounts, becomes incorporated into the bile salt pool when taken orally. In cholestasis, bile acids areExpand

Reactive Nitrogen Intermediates Promote Low Density Lipoprotein Oxidation in Human Atherosclerotic Intima*
Oxidized low density lipoprotein (LDL) may be of central importance in triggering atherosclerosis. One potential pathway involves the production of nitric oxide (NO) by vascular wall endothelialExpand

Ceramide-1-phosphate blocks apoptosis through inhibition of acid sphingomyelinase in macrophages Published, JLR Papers in Press, October 1, 2003. DOI 10.1194/jlr.M300158-JLR200
It was reported previously that ceramide-1-phosphate (Cer-1-P) is mitogenic for fibroblasts (Gómez-Muñoz, A., P. A. Duffy, A. Martin, L. O'Brien, H-S. Byun, R. Bittman, and D. N. Brindley. 1995.Expand

Predictors of relapse to significant alcohol drinking after liver transplantation.
BACKGROUND End-stage alcoholic liver disease is common, with many of these patients referred for liver transplantation (LT). Alcohol relapse after LT can have detrimental outcomes such as graft lossExpand

Oxidized low density lipoprotein inhibits macrophage apoptosis through activation of the PI 3-kinase/PKB pathway.
Oxidized LDL (oxLDL) is known to induce endothelial adhesion molecule and monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 expression and this is thought to be involved in monocyte recruitment into atheroscleroticExpand
