OBJECTIVE An aneurysm is an inflammatory vascular condition. Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases δ is highly expressed in leukocytes, and play a key role in innate immunity. However, the link between phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases δ and aneurysm development has not yet been elucidated. APPROACH AND RESULTS Carotid ligation unexpectedly induced characteristic(More)
We have previously reported that phosphoinositide 3-kinase p110δ knockout (p110δ KO) diminished the adhesion of leukocytes to capillary venules and suppressed the peritoneal infiltration of leukocytes, both functions that play important roles in atherosclerosis. Therefore, we hypothesized that p110δ deficiency might be protective against atherosclerosis.(More)
