AbstractExcessive proliferation of immune cells and vascular smooth myocytes (VSMCs) contributes to atherosclerosis. We have previously shown that whole-body inactivation of the growth suppressor p27 exacerbates atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-null mice (apoE–/–), and this correlated with increased proliferation of arterial macrophages and VSMCs. In the present study, we postulated that targeted disruption of bone marrow (BM) p27 is sufficient to enhance arterial macrophage proliferation and atherosclerosis. To test this hypothesis, sublethally irradiated apoE–/– mice with an intact p27 gene received a BM transplant from either apoE–/– or p27–/–apoE–/– doubly deficient donor mice and challenged with a high-cholesterol diet. Compared with mice that received an apoE–/– BM transplant, reconstitution with p27–/–apoE–/– doubly deficient marrow increased the expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen in neointimal macrophages and accelerated aortic atherosclerosis, and this correlated with augmented aortic expression of the inflammatory cytokines CCL2/MCP-1 (monocyte chemoattractant protein 1) and CCL5/RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted). Overall, these findings provide evidence that p27 deficiency in hematopoietic progenitor cells enhances the inflammatory/proliferative response induced by dietary cholesterol and accelerates atherosclerosis.
