Oxidation of low density lipoprotein by bovine and porcine aortic endothelial cells and porcine endocardial cells in culture.

Abstract

Oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) in atherosclerotic lesions may be involved in converting macrophages into cholesterol-laden foam cells, a major characteristic of atherosclerotic lesions. It has been reported, and is widely believed, that endothelial cells derived from rabbit, pig and human aortas, but not those derived from bovine aortas, are… (More)
