HDL suppresses Aβ-induced monocyte adhesion in engineered vessels via SR-BI. SR-BI blocking antibody was circulated through the lumen of engineered vessels prepared using HUVEC for 1 h prior treatment with 200 μg/mL of HDL for 2 h followed by injection of 1 μM of monomeric a Aβ40 or b Aβ42 within the tissue chamber (abluminal) for 8 h prior to injecting circulating fluorescent THP1 into the lumen. c-d ICAM-1 protein was measured in tissue lysates prepared in RIPA buffer by commercial ELISA. Graphs represent means ± SD of adhered monocytes relative to Aβ treated tissues from at least 4 individual grafts. * and # p < 0.05
