In a recent investigation, we demonstrated that long-term treatment of macrophages with IL-13 enhances cPLA2 expression and modulates zymosan-stimulated AA mobilization. In the present study, we examine the ability of IL-13 to modify the cPLA2 activity and the AA mobilization of macrophages after...
To address the question can the fatty acid selectivity of plant lipases be predicted from the composition of the seed triglyceride, we have characterised the selectivity of lipases from a wide range of oilseeds with diverse fatty acid compositions. For this study, a novel hydrolysis assay using a...
