Local dysregulation of iron metabolism is suggested to contribute to atherosclerotic lesion development through hemoglobin scavenging pathways. We evaluated the effects of CD163-mediated uptake of hemoglobin-haptoglobin (HbHp) complexes on surface CD163 and intracellular heme oxygenase-1 expression and the secretion of pro- and antiinflammatory cytokines by macrophages. We found that increased ...
