An association between cardiovascular and periodontal disease may be due to lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-promoted release of inflammatory mediators, adverse alterations of the lipoprotein profile, and an imbalance in cholesterol homeostasis. Since periodontopathogenic potential differs between serotypes of a major periodontal pathogen, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, we studied the pro-atherogenic properties of LPS preparations from serotypes b and d strains on macrophages (RAW 264.7). A. actinomycetemcomitans LPS preparations induced a time-dependent release of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta). LPS induced foam cell formation and cholesteryl ester accumulation from native low density lipoprotein in the following order: A. actinomycetemcomitans strains JP2 (serotype b) > Y4 (serotype b) > IDH781 (serotype d). mRNA expression levels of scavenger receptor class B, type-I, and ATP-binding cassette transporter-1, receptors mediating cholesterol efflux from macrophages, were decreased by LPS preparations. The results suggest that the pro-atherogenic potential of A. actinomycetemcomitans LPS may depend on the infecting strain and correlate with the periodontopathogenic potential of the pathogen.
