Abstract

Intracellular accumulation of stearic acid in MPMs activates inflammatory signaling, leading to ER stress-mediated apoptosis. M1 macrophages are more prone to stearic acid-induced inflammation and ER stress. These same pathways may be activated in macrophages residing in atherosclerotic plaques and metabolic tissues during conditions of obesity and hyperlipidemia.
