Induction of mitochondrial manganese superoxide dismutase in macrophages by oxidized LDL: its relevance in atherosclerosis of humans and heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits.


The objective of the study was to analyze the intracellular antioxidative response of macrophages (Mphi) exposed to increased levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL). We studied manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) and, in part, GSH in cultured human and rabbit Mphi, and in atheromatous arterial tissue of humans and heritable hyperlipidemic (HHL) rabbits… (More)
