Mast cells seem to coordinate both the innate and acquired immunity through the activation of TLRs and cytokine release (Fig. 2). Platelets also play a major role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis by several mechanisms, including production of inflammatory mediators (such as CD40L, myeloid-related protein-8/14 [MRP-8/14], and platelet-derived growth factor [PDGF]), and elicit leukocyte adhesion and incorporation into plaques, which is a robust example of the interplay between inflammation and thrombosis in the biology of atherothrombosis (Fig.

2) [19]. ScRs use receptor-mediated endocytosis to engulf and degrade a broad range of molecules and particles carrying pathogen-like molecular patterns, including oxidized lipoproteins (in particular, oxidized LDL [oxLDL]), bacterial endotoxins, and apoptotic cell fragments. Accumulation of cholesterol esters in the cytoplasm droplets, aggravated by pro-inflammatory cytokines and endotoxins that inhibit the expression of ATP-binding cassette transporters ABCA1 and ABCG1 responsible for cholesterol efflux from the cell, converts macrophages into foam cells, which are lipid-laden macrophages typical of early-stage atherosclerosis.
