BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the consistency of antiatherosclerotic potential of a combination oral contraceptive steroid (ethinyl estradiol+desogestrel) by rating its effect on the differential expression of the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) and lectin-like oxidized LDL (LOX-1) receptor.
STUDY DESIGN: Cells from placental trophoblast cell line (JAR) and differentiated primary placental trophoblast cells isolated from term human placentae were used for this study. Expressions of LOX-1 and LDLR were assessed by immunoblot and immunocytochemistry assays. Differential effects of the constituent steroids in the combination of ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel were verified on the expression profile of the receptors.
RESULTS: Desogestrel opposed the effect of ethinyl estradiol on LOX-1 expression, and when used in combination, the combination oral contraceptive reduced the expression of LOX-1 in contrast to LDLR. The characteristic change in the expressions of LOX-1 and LDLR showed an antiatherosclerotic improvisation at the unique combination of ethinyl estradiol (10 ng/mL) and desogestrel (20 ng/mL).
CONCLUSION: The aforesaid combination of ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel keeps LOX-1 and LDLR reciprocally expressed in antiatherosclerotic mode.
