Glucose influence on copper ion-dependent oxidation of low density lipoprotein.

Abstract

BACKGROUND It is well established that oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein (LDL) plays a causal role in human atherogenesis and the risk of atherosclerosis is increased in patients with diabetes mellitus. We examined the in vitro effect of glucose on native and glycated LDL oxidation using copper ion dependent oxidation system. METHODS In… (More)
