oxidatively modified low density lipoprotein 


A chemical form of LDL (OxMLDL) produced by vascular endothelial cells, which is central to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.

OxMLDL activates NF-kappa-B by increasing intracellular reactive oxygen production and inducing various pro-atherogenic cellular responses including vascular endothelial cell activation and dysfunction, reduction of nitric oxide (NO) release, pro-inflammatory responses, pro-oxidative conditions, monocyte adhesion and apoptosis.
