Opposing actions of native and oxidized lipoprotein on motor neuron-like cells.

Lipoproteins are present in the central nervous system and surrounding vasculature and possibly mediate effects relevant to neuronal physiology and pathology. To determine the effects of lipoproteins on motor neurons, native low density lipoproteins (LDL) and oxidized LDL (oxLDL) were applied to a motor neuron cell line. Oxidized LDL, but not native LDL… CONTINUE READING
