Increases in plasma LDL-cholesterol have unequivocally been established as a causal risk factor for atherosclerosis. Hence, strategies for lowering of LDL-cholesterol may have immediate therapeutic relevance. Here we study the role of human neutrophil peptide 1 (HNP1) in a mouse model of atherosclerosis and identify its potent atheroprotective effect both upon transgenic overexpression and therapeutic delivery. The effect was found to be due to a reduction of plasma LDL-cholesterol. Mechanistically, HNP1 binds to apolipoproteins enriched in LDL. This interaction facilitates clearance of LDL particles in the liver via LDL receptor. Thus, we here identify a non-redundant mechanism by which HNP1 allows for reduction of LDL-cholesterol, a process that may be therapeutically instructed to lower cardiovascular risk.
