Downregulation of PPARgamma expression in peripheral blood monocytes correlated with adhesion molecules in acute coronary syndrome.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) is a nuclear hormone receptor and may regulate the metabolism of lipids, inhibit monocytes/macrophages function and reduce the production of cell adhesion molecules and some inflammatory factors. Thus, it may affect the occurrence and progression of atherosclerosis. METHODS Forty… (More)
