Chondroitin sulfate-modified LDL induces increased cholesteryl ester synthesis and down-regulation of LDL receptors in smooth muscle cells and macrophages


Hypercholesterolemia induces increased transcytosis and accumulation of plasma lipoproteins in the arterial intima, where they interact with matrix proteins and become modified and reassembled lipoproteins. Chondroitin 6-sulfate-modified LDL (CS-mLDL) induces migration, proliferation, and lipid accumulation in human aortic smooth muscle cells (SMCs). To… (More)
