Myeloid related proteins activate toll-like receptor 4 in human acute coronary syndromes


Yonekawa, K; Neidhart, M; Altwegg, L A; Wyss, C A; Corti, R; Vogl, T; Grigorian, M; Gay, S; Lüscher, T F; Maier, W (2011). Myeloid related proteins activate toll-like receptor 4 in human acute coronary syndromes. Atherosclerosis, 218(2):486-492.

Abstract

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.
