In ACS, MRP8 and MRP8/14 complex are specific ligands of TLR4, which induce the release of TNFα and probably other pro-inflammatory agents from monocytes. This specific MRP8/14-dependent pathway with striking similarities to sepsis increasing expression of TLR4 in thrombi appears to be involved in the pathogenesis of coronary occlusion and may represent a novel therapeutic target in ACS.
