OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of CD4(+)CD25(+)forkhead box P 3 (Foxp3)(+) T-regulatory cells (Tregs) in protecting the activation and function of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) induced by proinflammatory stimulus and the mechanisms of it. METHODS AND RESULTS ECs play a major role in atherogenic initiation, changing their quiescence(More)
Cluster of differentiation (CD)4+CD25+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) exert a suppressive activity on atherosclerosis, but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here, we investigated whether and how Tregs affect macrophages foam-cell formation. Tregs were isolated by magnetic cell sorting-column and analyzed by flow cytometry. Macrophages were cultured with(More)
CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) exert a suppressive activity on atherosclerosis but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here, we investigated whether and how Tregs affect oxLDL-induced proinflammatory response in macrophages. Tregs were isolated by magnetic cell sorting-column and analyzed by flow cytometry. Macrophages were cultured with or(More)
