Abstract

A recent study indicated that the DNA isolated from human coronary atherosclerotic lesions is capable of transforming NIH3T3 cells in culture. Using DNA isolated from rabbit aortic and human carotid atherosclerotic lesions, we failed to observed such transforming activity. Thus, NIH3T3 transforming activity does not appear to be a general feature of atherosclerotic lesions.
