Effect of high-density lipoproteins on the expression of adhesion molecules in endothelial cells.


There are several potential mechanisms by which HDLs protect against atherosclerosis. One relates to the ability of HDLs to promote the efflux of cholesterol from macrophages. Another is the ability of HDLs to inhibit one of the earliest events in the development of atherosclerosis, namely the expression of vascular cell adhesion molecules in activated… (More)
