Low density lipoprotein (LDL) incubated with cultured endothelial cells from rabbit aorta or human umbilical vein is altered in several ways (EC-modified): (i) It is degraded by macrophages much faster than LDL similarly incubated in the absence of cells or incubated with fibroblasts. (ii) Its electrophoretic mobility is increased. (iii) Its density is increased. We report here that antioxidants completely prevent these changes. We also report that these changes do not take place if transition… Expand
Macrophage Oxidation of Low Density Lipoprotein Generates a Modified Form Recognized by the Scavenger Receptor
TLDR
The degradation of 125l-labeled macrophage-modified LDL by macrophages was competitively inhibited by unlabeled acetyl LDL or unlabeling endothelial cell-modified HDL but not by native LDL, indicating that the degradation was mediated by the acetyl HDL receptor. Expand
Enzymatic modification of low density lipoprotein by purified lipoxygenase plus phospholipase A2 mimics cell-mediated oxidative modification.
TLDR
It is shown that incubation of LDL with purified soybean lipoxygenase, in the presence of pure phospholipase A2, can mimic endothelial cell-induced oxidative modification, and represents the first example of oxidative modification of LDL by specific enzymes leading to enhanced recognition by macrophages.

Oxidation of beta-very low density lipoprotein by endothelial cells enhances its metabolism by smooth muscle cells in culture.
We have previously shown that beta-very low density lipoprotein (beta-VLDL) incubated with bovine aortic endothelial cells (ECs) is bound and internalized more readily by cultured rabbit aorticExpand
Decrease in Reactive Amino Groups during Oxidation or Endothelial Cell Modification of LDL: Correlation with Changes in Receptor‐Mediated Cataboiism
TLDR
These studies demonstrate that all of the changes associated with endothelial cell modification of LDL can be attributed to oxidation, and the cells can, however, promote oxidation under conditions where it would otherwise occur very slowly. Expand
Oxidation of / 8-Very Low Density Lipoprotein by Endothelial Cells Enhances Its Metabolism by Smooth Muscle Cells in Culture
We have previously shown that /J-very low density lipoprotein (/J-VLDL) incubated with bovine aortic endothelial cells (ECs) is bound and internalized more readily by cultured rabbit aortic smoothExpand
Oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein (LDL) by activated human monocytes and the cell lines U937 and HL60
TLDR
It is reported that optimal modification of LDL by monocytes was influenced by media composition, and in the absence of added metal ions, oxidation was distinctly dependent on the concentration of monocytes as well as LDL concentration. Expand
Endothelial cells prevent accumulation of lipid hydroperoxides in low-density lipoprotein.
TLDR
Endothelial cells have a limited capacity for preventing LOOH formation and that small increases in LOOhs may play a critical role in enhancing the potential of endothelial cells for oxidative modification of LDL. Expand
Derivatization of Apo-Low-Density Lipoprotein Lysine Residues by Lipid Peroxidation Products during Low-Density Lipoprotein Oxidation
Cultured endothelial cells or arterial smooth muscle cells have previously been shown to promote LDL oxidation. Oxidized LDL is not recognized by the LDL receptor of fibroblasts but is rapidlyExpand
In vitro incubation of low-density lipoproteins with inflammatory cells causes enhanced degradation by macrophages in culture
TLDR
These results implicate peroxidative reactions associated with an inflammatory response as mediators of the in vivo modifications in IF-LDL which facilitates enhanced uptake via the scavenger receptor in MPM. Expand
Probucol inhibits oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein.
TLDR
The findings suggest the hypothetical but intriguing possibility that probucol, in addition to its recognized effects on plasma LDL levels, may inhibit atherogenesis by limiting oxidative LDL modification and thus foam cell formation and/or EC injury. Expand
