Co-Repressing Atherosclerosis! Sara Oppi & colleagues demonstrate how macrophage NCOR1 exerts atheroprotective functions.


In this new study from Sara Oppi and great collaborators that is now online at the Eur Heart J we demonstrate that the deletion of macrophage NCOR1 aggravates atherosclerosis development in experimental models. Moreover, analysis of carotid plaques from atherosclerotic patients suggests that the NCOR1-driven protection might also play a role in humans.
