|Title:||Toll-like receptor-dependent lipid body formation in macrophage foam cell formation.|
|Citation:||CURR OPIN LIPIDOL, 2010, 21 (5), pp. 427-433|
|Abstract:||The differentiation of macrophages into lipid-laden foam cells is central to the development of atherosclerosis. Traditionally, it has been assumed that the uptake of oxidized low-density lipoprotein by macrophage scavenger receptors is largely responsible for this process. However, in light of recent evidence that these mechanisms may not play as large a role as previously thought, alternative mechanisms of foam cell formation are now being explored.|
