Several lines of clinical and experimental evidence strongly support a potential role for PON-1 in protection against atherosclerosis. Paraoxonase-1 has anti-atherogenic properties, which are associated with the enzyme’s capability to protect LDL, as well as HDL from oxidation, to decrease macrophage oxidative status, to stimulate cholesterol efflux from macrophages, and to decrease oxidative status in atherosclerotic lesions. Furthermore, PON-1 was suggested to contribute to the anti-inflammatory activity of HDL by destroying biologically active lipids in mildly oxidized LDL, resulting in decreased inflammatory responses in the artery wall cells.
