Other reports suggested that oxidative stress created reactive oxygen species (ROS) that induced the generation of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL), and then ox-LDL binding to lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) resulted in the activation of NADPH oxidase and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38MAPK)-mediated signaling pathway.
