p-hydroxyphenylacetaldehyde, an aldehyde generated by myeloperoxidase, modifies phospholipid amino groups of low density lipoprotein in human atherosclerotic intima.


Oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) may be of critical importance in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Recent studies suggest that oxidized phospholipids render LDL atherogenic. However, both the structures and the physiologically relevant pathways for the formation of modified phospholipids in oxidized LDL remain poorly understood. We previously… (More)
