Possible Relationship between Aortic Acid Mucopolysaccharides and Species-susceptibility to Experimental Atherosclerosis

Abstract

DIFFERENCES between species in susceptibility to experimental atherosclerosis is one of the most stimulating problems of atherogenesis. Animal species less susceptible to cholesterol-induced atherosclerosis showed a greater lipolytic activity of the arterial wall1–3 and a higher alpha-beta serum lipoprotein ratio4,5 than susceptible ones. Moreover, the thyroid gland was found to be more active in the former group than in the latter6–9.
