TRLs increase inflammation in HUVECs and macrophages dependent on ApoCIII. (a) MCP1 expression in HUVECs incubated with 100 μg/ml TRLs for 48 h (n = 4), **p < 0.01. (b) Western blot images (up) and the protein quantification (down) of VCAM-1 in HUVECs after the incubation with 20 μg/ml TRLs for 24 h and 1 μg/ml LPS for 6 h before the analysis (n = 4). (c) Expression of inflammation related genes in peritoneal macrophages after the incubation with 100 μg/ml TRLs for 24 h and an 1 μg/ml LPS stimulation for the last 6 h (n = 4)
