Specific Oxidized Phospholipids Inhibit Scavenger Receptor BI-mediated Selective Uptake of Cholesteryl Esters*

We have recently demonstrated that specific oxidized phospholipids (oxPCCD36) accumulate at sites of oxidative stress in vivo such as within atherosclerotic lesions, hyperlipidemic plasma, and plasma with low high-density lipoprotein levels. oxPCCD36 serve as high affinity ligands for the scavenger receptor CD36, mediate uptake of oxidized low density lipoprotein by macrophages, and promote a pro-thrombotic state via platelet scavenger receptor CD36. We now report that oxPCCD36 represent ligands for another member of the scavenger receptor class B, type I (SR-BI). oxPCCD36 prevent binding to SR-BI of its physiological ligand, high density lipoprotein, because of the close proximity of the binding sites for these two ligands on SR-BI. Furthermore, oxPCCD36 interfere with SR-BI-mediated selective uptake of cholesteryl esters in hepatocytes. Thus, oxidative stress and accumulation of specific oxidized phospholipids in plasma may have an inhibitory effect on reverse cholesterol transport
