ABCA1 gene expression in peripheral blood lymphocytes and macrophages in patients with atherosclerosis

Abstract

ABCA1 transporter is known to play an important role in cholesterol transport from peripheral tissues. However, its contribution to atherosclerosis development remains obscure. Using Real Time PCR, we detected a significant reduction of ABCA1 mRNA level in leukocytes of patients with atherosclerosis compared to control. Mean ABCA1 expression levels in… (More)
