Schematic diagram of regulatory machinery for modulating atherosclerosis. Atheroprotective PS induces the expression, nuclear accumulation, and association of RARα (director) and RXRα (enhancer) to promote RARα/RARE binding and miR-10a expression in ECs. PS-induced miR-10a targets pro-inflammatory transcription factor GATA6 to repress its expression to inhibit downstream VCAM-1 expression. PS-induced RARα/miR-10a signaling elicits anti-inflammatory signaling in ECs. In contrast, pro-atherogenic OS induces the association of RARα with HDAC-3/− 5/− 7 (repressors) to repress RARα-directed miR-10a signaling to induce pro-inflammatory responses in ECs
