Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) particles contain low molecular weight species which are cytotoxic and pro-atherogenic.1 Many of these substances were isolated and purified from oxLDL and identified as phosphatidylcholine species containing a fragmented, oxidized short-chain fatty acid remnant at the sn-2 position.2 PAz-PC is one of the predominant oxLDL species and may be one of the important structural determinants of oxLDL.3
