AIMS LDL is subjected to glycoxidation in diabetes mellitus. We have evaluated the effect of glycoxidized LDL on lectin-like oxidized low density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) expression in endothelial cells in vitro, as well as the relationship between glycoxidzied LDL and LOX-1 in type 2 diabetic patients with and without microalbuminuria in vivo. METHODS Endothelial cells were incubated with modified LDL including glycoxidized LDL, oxidized LDL (oxLDL), glycated LDL, and acetylated LDL… CONTINUE READING
