Supplementary Material

Supplementary figures support our data showing an overexpression of M2 markers at the mRNA level (Mgl2, YM1, Arg1 and MRC1) (Figures S1 and S5) and at the protein level (IL-10) (Figure S3), when M0, M1 and M2 macrophages are stimulated with MpOx-LDLs. There is no marked effect of MpOx-LDLs on M1 markers at the mRNA level (Arg2 and TNF-α) (Figure S2) and at the protein level (IL-12 and TNF-α) (Figure S3). Figure S4 shows the effects of LDLs on the secretion of cytokines (IL-10, IL-12 and TNF-α) in RAW 264.7 M0 macrophages stimulated with Nat-LDLs, Ox-LDLs or MpOx-LDLs for 24 hours. Figure S6 shows the impact of native or oxidized LDLs on the phagocytosis of fluorescent beads by (un)polarized RAW 264.7 macrophages and BMDMs. Materials and methods are described in the Materials and Methods section of the manuscript.
