CD36, the macrophage type B scavenger receptor, binds and internalizes oxidized low density lipoprotein, a key event in the development of macrophage foam cells within atherosclerotic lesions. Expression of CD36 in monocyte/macrophages is dependent on differentiation status and exposure to soluble mediators. In this study, we investigated the effect of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) and TGF-beta2 on the expression of CD36 in macrophages. Treatment of phorbol ester-differentiated… CONTINUE READING
