Interaction Information:

Comment Addition of low concentrations of OxLDL causes an increase in proliferation of HUVECs of 250 to 300%. OxLDL and its compound LPC induce proliferation of HUVEC through activation of NADPH oxidase. The active NADPH oxidase generates O2-, which mediates the proliferative effects.
