Roles of CD68 in macrophage function, host defense, atherosclerosis and autoimmunity

And they exhibited signs of autoimmune disorders including high inflammation, autoimmune hyperglycemia and murine lupus after 6 months of age. We also generated combined CD68/ApoE-deficient and ApoE-deficient control mice to compare atherosclerosis. Early lesion was examined in 4-month-old mice fed chow diet. CD68/ApoE-deficient mice exhibited significantly more atherosclerosis (40% increase) than controls. The autoimmune abnormality could be explained by difficulty ...

Molecular Autoimmunity

Indeed, its deficiency in LDLR−/− or apoE−/− mice results in decreased atherosclerotic lesions (King et al., 2002; Davenport and Tipping, 2003). These results are surprising at first glance since IL-4 can downregulate IFN-γ production , Th1 responses, and macrophage activation. The proatherogenic effect of IL-4 may be due to its capacity to increase CD36 expression on macrophages, a scavenger receptor important for oxLDL uptake and therefore foam cell formation (Huang et al., ...
