Anti-beta 2-glycoprotein I autoantibodies and atherosclerosis.


beta 2-Glycoprotein I (beta 2-GPI) is a major antigen for antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) present in patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). We previously reported that beta 2-GPI specifically binds to oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL). Further, a ligand specific for beta 2-GPI, oxLig-1, purified from the extracted lipids of oxLDL was… (More)
