Caveolin-1 sensitizes vascular smooth muscle cells to mildly oxidized LDL-induced apoptosis.

Abstract : Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL)-induced apoptosis of vascular cells may participate to plaque instability and rupture. Caveolin-1 has emerged as an important regulator of several signal transduction pathways and processes that play a role in atherosclerosis. In this study we examined the potential role of caveolin-1 in the regulation of oxLDL-induced Ca(2+) signaling and apoptosis in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). Cells expressing caveolin-1 were more susceptible to oxLDL-induced apoptosis, and this was correlated with enhanced Ca(2+) entry and pro-apoptotic events. Moreover, caveolin-1 silencing by small interfering RNA decreased the level of apoptotic cells after oxLDL treatment. These findings provide new insights about the potential role of caveolin-1 in the regulation of oxLDL-induced apoptosis in vascular cells and its contribution to the instability of the plaque.
