Abstract: The investigation of the effect of oxidized lipoproteins on platelet activity is important for the understanding of the plague formation under atherosclerosis. In the present work, we examined the influence of low density lipoproteins (LDL) on ADP-induced platelet aggregation in the platelet rich plasma. In was demonstrated that mixing of plasma and LDL was accompanied by the decrease of ADP-induced aggregation parameters as compared to control (mixing with buffer). After 1 h incubation, platelet ADP-aggregation in the sample containing oxidized LDL (oxLDL) exceeded the ADP-aggregation in the control sample. The dependence of the aggregation parameters on the incubation time and on the degree of LDL oxidation were obtained. No difference in the cholesterol and phospholipid content was observed between cells incubated with buffer, native or oxidized LDL. Therefore, the possible oxLDL-induced accumulation of cholesterol in platelet membranes is excluded as a reason for the increased cell aggregation.
