Background

Macrophage death in advanced lesion has been confirmed to play an important role in plaque instability.
However, the mechanism underlying lesion macrophage death still remains largely unknown.

Methods and Results

Immunohistochemistry showed that caspase-1 activated in advanced lesion and co-located with macrophages and TUNEL positive reaction.
In in-vitro experiments showed that ox-LDL induced caspase-1 activation and this activation was required for ox-LDL induced macrophages lysis, IL-1β and IL-18 production as well as DNA fragmentation.
Mechanism experiments showed that CD36 and NLRP3-caspase-1-pathway involved in ox-LDL induced macrophage pyroptosis.

Conclusion

Our study here identified a novel cell death, pyroptosis in ox-LDL induced human macrophage, which may be implicated in lesion macrophages death and play an important role in lesion instability.
