The pathophysiological relevance of this effect in atherosclerotic plaque calcification remains to be determined. Methods—We used Ldlr −/− mice with macrophage-specific loss of TRPC3 (MacTrpc3 −/−/Ldlr −/−) to examine the effect of macrophage Trpc3 on plaque calcification and osteogenic features in advanced atherosclerosis. Results—After 25 weeks on high fat diet, aortic root plaques in MacTrpc3 −/−/Ldlr −/− mice showed reduced size, lipid and macrophage content compared to controls. Plaque calcification was decreased in MacTrpc3 −/−/Ldlr −/− mice, and this was accompanied by marked reduction in BMP-2, Runx-2 and phospho-SMAD1/5 contents within macrophage-rich areas. Expression of Bmp-2 and Runx-2 was also reduced in bone marrow-derived macrophages from MacTrpc3 −/−/ Ldlr −/− mice. Conclusions—These findings show that, in advanced atherosclerosis, selective deletion of TRPC3 in macrophages favors plaque regression and impairs the activity of a novel macrophageassociated, BMP-2-dependent mechanism of calcification.||URI :||https://repositorio.uca.edu.ar/handle/123456789/8715||ISSN :||0021-9150
