Protein kinase C activity is required for lipid oxidation of low density lipoprotein by activated human monocytes.

Abstract

Our previous studies have shown that human monocytes can oxidize native low density lipoprotein (LDL) and transform it to a cytotoxin. We also found that intracellular Ca2+ levels are integrally involved in lipid oxidation of LDL by activated monocytes. In these studies, we investigated the protein kinase C (PKC) signaling pathway for its contribution to… (More)
