We investigated whether the adipocytokine, adiponectin, protected the endothelium against damage induced by oxidised low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (oxLDL). Human umbilical vein endothelial cells were cultured with either 200 or 350 microg/ml oxLDL, with or without adiponectin purified from human serum (12 microg/ml). Cellular oxidative status was assessed by measuring reactive oxygen species (ROS), peroxynitrite and glutathione (GSH) levels, while cell function was evaluated by measuring… CONTINUE READING
