Dietary glycotoxins promote diabetic atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice.
Hyperglycemia derived advanced glycation endproducts (AGE) have been implicated in diabetic atherosclerosis (AS) but the role of exogenous (dietary) AGE in the development of this serious complication is not known. This study evaluates the influence of diet-related AGE on AS in genetically hypercholesterolemic apolipoprotein E-deficient (apoE(-/-)), streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice. Diabetic and non-diabetic apoE(-/-) mice (6-8 weeks old) were randomized into either a standard AIN-93G cho...Expand abstract
