Inducible ApoE gene repair in hypomorphic ApoE mice deficient in the low-density lipoprotein receptor promotes atheroma stabilization with a human-like lipoprotein profile.


OBJECTIVE To study atherosclerosis regression in mice after plasma lipid reduction to moderately elevated apolipoprotein B (apoB)-lipoprotein levels. APPROACH AND RESULTS Chow-fed hypomorphic Apoe mice deficient in low-density lipoprotein receptor expression (Apoe(h/h)Ldlr(-/-)Mx1-cre mice) develop hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis. These mice were… (More)
