Abstract Macrophages play a central role in both innate immunity to infection and atherosclerosis. Castrillo and colleagues report that selected microbial agonists for Toll-like receptors strongly inhibit LXR-mediated cholesterol efflux from macrophages. TLR-LXR crosstalk could explain how nonspecific microbial infections promote atherogenesis.
