Brain microvascular and intracranial artery resistance to atherosclerosis is associated with heme oxygenase and ferritin in Japanese quail

Abstract

Oxidative stress and increased oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) through free radical-mediated tissue injury may be important factors in the development of extracranial atherosclerotic lesions. However, the roles of oxidative stress and hypercholesterolemia in intracranial atherosclerosis is less established. The induction of heme oxygenase (HO… (More)
