7,8-Dihydroneopterin and its effect on the formation of foam cells.
(University of Canterbury. School of Biological Sciences, 2015)
Atherosclerosis (Heart Disease) is an inflammatory disease caused by the formation of plaque within the arterial wall. In response to inflammation, monocytes enter the artery wall, differentiate into macrophages and take ...
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 ...
