The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is expressed on multiple cell types implicated in the progression of atherosclerosis and plays a role in diabetes-associated atherosclerosis (DAA). We aimed to determine the relative role of either bone marrow or non-bone marrow derived RAGE in the pathogenesis of streptozotocin (STZ)- DAA. Seven week old male ApoE null (ApoE-/-:RAGE+/+) and ApoE:RAGE null (ApoE-/-:RAGE-/-) mice were rendered diabetic with STZ. At eight weeks of age, ApoE-/- and ApoE-/-:RAGE-/- control and diabetic mice received bone marrow from either RAGE null or RAGE-bearing mice, generating various chimeras. After 10 and 20 weeks of diabetes, mice were sacrificed and gene expression and atherosclerotic lesion formation were evaluated, respectively. Deletion of RAGE in either the bone marrow cells or non-bone marrow cells both resulted in a significant attenuation in DAA which was associated with reduced VCAM-1 expression and translated to reduced adhesion in vitro. This study highlights the importance of both bone marrow and non-bone marrow derived RAGE in attenuating the development of DAA.
