LDL receptor-related protein 1 (LRP1) is highly expressed in the vascular wall and is mainly associated with macrophages and vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Overexpression of LRP1 in atherosclerotic lesions has been demonstrated in several animal models and human lesions. Clinical studies have suggested a relation between alterations in LRP1 expression and coronary heart disease. Indeed, it has been demonstrated that LRP1 gene expression is increased in blood mononuclear cells from… CONTINUE READING
