Lectin-like oxidized LDL receptor-1 (LOX-1), a 52-kD type II transmembrane receptor for oxidized low-density lipoproteins (ox-LDL) belonging to the C-type lectin family is present primarily on endothelial cells (1). Accumulating evidences indicate that oxLDL uptake through this receptor induces endothelial dysfunction. oxLDL binding to endothelial LOX-1 generates superoxide anions, decreases nitric oxide production, and activates NF-kB (2, 3). Endothelial LOX-1 expression is induced by various pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-alpha (4) and TGF-beta (5) as well as by pro-atherogenic factors, such as oxLDL and advanced glycation end products in vitro (6). This receptor is expressed in the aortas of hypertensive, diabetic, and hyperlipidemic animals (6-8) and is upregulated in early human atherosclerotic lesions (9). These results suggest that LOX-1 may be expressed locally and play important roles in atherogenesis by internalizing and degrading oxLDL and in inflammatory responses in vivo. LOX-1 can be cleaved from the cell surface and released as soluble LOX-1 (sLOX-1), and elevated sLOX-1 levels may be indicative of atherosclerotic plaque instability (10).
