Non-activatable mutant of inhibitor of kappa B kinase α (IKKα) exerts vascular site-specific effects on atherosclerosis in Apoe-deficient mice.

IKKα is an important regulator of gene expression. As IKKα kinase inactivity in bone marrow-derived cells does not affect atherosclerosis, we here investigate the impact of a whole body-IKKα kinase inactivity on atherosclerosis.


Macrophage Polarization in Atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory response that increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases. An in-depth study of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is critical for the treatment of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The development of atherosclerosis involves many cells, such as endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, macrophages, and others. The considerable effects of macrophages in atherosclerosis are inextricably linked to macrophage polarization and the resulting phenotype. Mo...

Genital Chlamydia infection in hyperlipidemic mouse models exacerbates atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease, and recent studies have shown that infection at remote sites can contribute to the progression of atherosclerosis in hyperlipidemic mouse models. In this report, we tested the hypothesis that genital Chlamydia infection could accelerate the onset and progression of atherosclerosis.


The PGC-1α/NRF1/miR-378a axis protects vascular smooth muscle cells from FFA-induced proliferation, migration and inflammation in atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis (AS) is the leading cause of cardiovascular diseases. PGC-1α is a key regulator of cellular energy homeostasis, but its role in AS remains debatable.

Krüppel-like factor 14 inhibits atherosclerosis via mir-27a-mediated down-regulation of lipoprotein lipase expression in vivo.

Krüppel-like factor 14 (KLF14) is known to play a role in atherosclerosis, but the underlying mechanisms are still largely unknown. The aim of our study was to explore the effects of KLF14 on lipid metabolism and inflammatory response, providing a potential target for lowering the risk of atherosclerosis-causing disease.

Nucleic Acid-Based Therapies for Atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis is characterized by accumulation of lipids and chronic inflammation in medium size to large arteries. Recently, RNA-based antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are being developed, along with small molecule-based drugs and monoclonal antibodies, for the treatment of risk factors associated with atherosclerosis.. The purpose of this review is to describe nucleic acid-based therapeutics and introduce novel RNAs that might become future tools for treatment of ath...

Atherosclerosis: Beyond the lipid storage. The role of autoimmunity.

Atherosclerosis has long been considered as a lipid storage disease. Recent data suggest that autoimmune mechanisms seem to be involved in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis. The presence of activated endothelial vascular cells, neutrophils, macrophages, T- and to a lesser extent B-cells in atherosclerotic plaques, together with the proinflammatory cytokine burden suggest mobilization of both innate and adaptive immune pathways in atherosclerosis pathobiology. The development of antibodies to oxidized l...

IgM natural antibody T15/E06 in atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis is regarded as a lipid-driven chronic inflammatory disease. A variety of immune cells, including B1 cells, play an important role in the occurrence and development of atherosclerosis. T15/E06 is an IgM Nab secreted by B1 cells. The concentration of T15/E06 is significantly decreased in animal models of atherosclerosis. Accumulating evidence has shown that T15/E06 can protect against atherosclerosis by blocking macrophage lipid uptake, inhibiting vascular inflammation, and promoting apoptotic...

Long noncoding RNA Chaer mediated Polycomb Repressor Complex 2 (PRC2) activity to promote atherosclerosis through mTOR signaling.

Recent studies highlighted long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been implicated in many biological processes and diseases. However, atherosclerosis is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, but the detailed mechanism of atherosclerosis progression remained unclear. In this study, we mainly focused on the role of lncRNA Chaer in atherosclerosis.

Characterization of a mouse model to study the relationship between apical periodontitis and atherosclerosis.

First, to determine the feasibility of using the low density lipoprotein receptor knockout (LDLR KO) mouse model to study apical periodontitis (AP). Second, to investigate the causal relationship between AP and atherosclerosis. It was hypothesized that it would be feasible to induce AP and atherosclerosis in LDLR KO mice and find a difference in atherosclerosis between AP and Sham groups.

T-Cell Molecular Modulation Responses in Atherosclerosis Anergy.

Atherosclerosis continues to be a major cause of death in patients with cardiovascular diseases. The cooperative role of immunity has been recently considered in atherosclerotic plaque inflammation, especially adaptive immune response by T cells. In this review, we examine the possible role of T cells in atherosclerosis-mediated inflammation and conceivable therapeutic strategies that can ameliorate complications of atherosclerosis. The cytokines secreted by T-lymphocyte subsets, different pathophysiologica...

Atherosclerosis prevention: the role of special diets and functional food.

Accumulating evidence highlight the importance of diet in the pathogenesis as well as prevention of atherosclerosis. In this review, we summarize the results of recent studies that demonstrate direct and indirect effects if functional foods and their analogues in prevention of initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. We discuss the epidemiological and clinical observations of such diets and dicuss their effects on the pathological mechanisms that drive atherosclerosis at cellular and molecular level.

T-cell death-associated gene 8 accelerates atherosclerosis by promoting vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration.

Atherosclerosis is a serious cardiovascular disease, featuring inflammation, abnormal proliferation and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). During atherosclerosis, inflammation may cause low pH. T-cell death-associated gene 8 (Tdag8) is a proton-sensing receptor, however, the role of Tdag8 in VSMCs remains unknown. This study aimed to investigate the potential effects of Tdag8 in VSMCs during atherosclerosis.

Diabetes influences cancer risk in patients with increased carotid atherosclerosis burden.

Atherosclerosis and cancer share several risk factors suggesting that at least in part their pathogenesis is sustained by common mechanisms. To investigate this relation we followed a group of subjects with carotid atherosclerosis at baseline up for malignancy development.

Genome-wide linkage analysis of carotid artery traits in exceptionally long-lived families.

Atherosclerosis develops with age and is partially controlled by genetics. Research to date has identified common variants with small effects on atherosclerosis related traits. We aimed to use family-based genome-wide linkage analysis to identify chromosomal regions potentially harboring rare variants with larger effects for atherosclerosis related traits.

Liraglutide improves atherosclerosis by regulating long non-coding RNA RMRP/miR-128-1-5P/Gadd45g axis.

Recent studies indicated that long non-coding RNA is involved in the formation of atherosclerosis, which is the pathological basis of coronary heart disease. Here, we reported the function and regulatory mechanism of RMRP in coronary atherosclerosis.

Childhood risk factors and carotid atherosclerotic plaque in adulthood: The Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study.

Carotid plaque is a specific sign of atherosclerosis and adults with carotid plaque are at increased risk for cardiovascular outcomes. Atherosclerosis has roots in childhood and pediatric guidelines provide cut-off values for cardiovascular risk factors. However, it is unknown whether these cut-offs predict adulthood advanced atherosclerosis.

3-Hydroxyanthralinic acid Metabolism Controls the Hepatic Srebp/Lipoprotein axis, Inhibits Inflammasome Activation in Macrophages, and Decreases Atherosclerosis in LDLR-/- Mice.

Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease involving immunological and metabolic processes. Metabolism of tryptophan (Trp) via the kynurenine pathway has shown immunomodulatory properties and the ability to modulate atherosclerosis. We identified 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid (3-HAA) as a key metabolite of Trp modulating vascular inflammation and lipid metabolism. The molecular mechanisms driven by 3-HAA in atherosclerosis have not been completely elucidated. In this study, we investigated whether two ma...

Therefore, noninvasive imaging of hematopoietic organs and immune cells will undoubtedly improve atherosclerosis phenotyping and serve as a monitoring method for immunotherapeutic treatments. Among the available imaging techniques, positron emission tomography's unique features make it an ideal tool to quantitatively image the immune response in the ...

Transition of metabolic phenotypes and risk of subclinical atherosclerosis according to BMI: a prospective study.

The cardiometabolic risk associated with metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) remains the subject of debate. It is unclear whether MHO is a transient condition that affects subclinical atherosclerosis risk. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of MHO and its transition over time with incident subclinical atherosclerosis.

Atorvastatin inhibits pyroptosis through the lncRNA NEXN-AS1/NEXN pathway in human vascular endothelial cells.

Many clinical trials have demonstrated that statins convey protective effects against atherosclerosis independent of cholesterol-lowering capacities. Other evidence indicates that pyroptosis, a type of programmed cell death, is likely involved in atherosclerosis, but the effects and mechanisms of statins on pyroptosis must be further revealed.

TPM2 as a potential predictive biomarker for atherosclerosis.

Cardiac-cerebral vascular disease (CCVD), is primarily induced by atherosclerosis, and is a leading cause of mortality. Numerous studies have investigated and attempted to clarify the molecular mechanisms of atherosclerosis; however, its pathogenesis has yet to be completely elucidated. Two expression profiling datasets, GSE43292 and GSE57691, were obtained from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database. The present study then identified the differentially expressed genes (DEGs), and functional annotation ...

Effect of a coronary-heart-disease-associated variant of ADAMTS7 on endothelial cell angiogenesis.

Recent studies have unveiled an association between ADAMTS7 gene variation and coronary artery disease (CAD) caused by atherosclerosis. We investigated if the ADAMTS7 Serine214-to-Proline substitution arising from a CAD-associated variant affected angiogenesis, since neovascularization plays an important role in atherosclerosis.
