Modified low density lipoproteins binding requires a lysine cluster region in the murine macrophage scavenger receptor class A type II

Abstract

Atherosclerosis is a consequence of lipid deposition and foam cell formation in the arterial wall. Macrophage scavenger receptor A II is involved in the uptake of modified low density lipoproteins. It contains an extracellular conserved lysine cluster which has been proposed to form a positively charged groove that interacts with acetylated low density… (More)
