All tissues are able to store neutral lipids, i.e. cholesterol esters (CE) and triglycerides (TG), which are accumulated in lipid droplets (LDs) consisting of a core of neutral lipids surrounded by phospholipids and proteins that interact with other cellular compartments. Lipid-laden macrophages play a central role in the initiation and development of atherosclerosis. Perilipin 2 (PLIN2) is the most abundant LD-associated protein in macrophages and it is associated with foam cell formation. Mice knocked-out for Plin2 show reduced atherosclerosis. Thus, PLIN2 seems to be a key player in macrophage lipid metabolism. We have identified a functional missense single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in PLIN2, which is associated with subclinical atherosclerosis (intima media thickness) in individuals with high risk of cardiovascular disease. The specific aim is to elucidate how the PLIN2 SNP affects handling of different lipid types in macrophages in relation to LD lipid composition, size and dynamics.PCR, Western Blot, immunoflourescence, cell culturing (cell lines or primary cells)Lipid handling, lipid metabolism, foam cells, atherosclerosisThe student needs to be admitted or affiliated to an educational programme ( or exchange programme) at KI to be able to give a stipend
