Low density lipoprotein induction of intracellular oxidants production
(University of Canterbury. School of Biological Sciences, 2015)
Atherosclerosis is a complex cardiovascular disease characterized by chronic progressive inflammation of the arteries. The progression of atherosclerosis from fatty streak to advance atherosclerotic plaque involves the ...
7,8-Dihydroneopterin-mediated protection of low density lipoprotein, but not human macrophages, from oxidative stress
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2006)
Any lipoproteins and cells present in the inflammatory environment of atherosclerotic plaques are likely to be exposed to high levels of oxidative stress. As 7,8-dihydroneopterin (7,8-NP) is synthesized by interferon-Î³ ...
Formation, Transport and Detection of 7,8-Dihydroneopterin
(University of Canterbury. School of Biological Sciences, 2013)
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease leading to plaque buildup in the major arteries. The plaques consist of cholesterol, calcium, inflammatory cells, extracellular matrix and fibrous material. Under ...
