High density lipoprotein-induced cardiac prostacyclin synthesis in vitro: relationship to cardiac arachidonate mobilization.

Abstract

The objectives of this study were to characterize the effects of plasma lipoproteins on prostacyclin (PGI2) production by the Langendorff-perfused rabbit heart, and to determine the mechanism of lipoprotein-induced cardiac PGI2 production. PGI2 production by perfused rabbit hearts was stimulated by injections of rabbit very low density lipoproteins (VLDL… (More)
