Atherosclerosis is characterized by the generation of lipid-loaded macrophage-derived foam cells. To study the effect of different types of atherogenic lipoproteins, human macrophages were loaded with enzymatically degraded low density lipoprotein (E-LDL) or oxidized LDL (Ox-LDL). Cellular cholesterol content was increased by E-LDL, whereas Ox-LDL increased the ceramide content. Cell surface ...
