To elucidate the reaction mechanism of hydroperoxide lyase (HPL), the enzyme from guava ( Psidium guajava ) fruits, was incubated for 10–60 s at 0 °C with 13-HPOT. The products were rapidly extracted and derivatized by trimethylsilylation. Two trapping products, namely the trimethylsilyl...
We studied the molecular mechanism through which the fungal β-lactone, hymeglusin, potently and specifically inhibits 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) synthase. ( 14 C)Hymeglusin covalently bound to purified rat liver and to recombinant hamster cytosolic HMG-CoA synthases. The enzyme...
Loss of adipose tissue in cancer cachexia has been associated with tumour production of a lipid-mobilizing factor (LMF) which has been shown to be homologous with the plasma protein zinc-α 2 -glycoprotein (ZAG). The aim of this study was to compare the ability of human ZAG with LMF to stimulate...
The effect of inhibition of acylCoA: cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) was studied on high density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism. An inhibitor of ACAT, MCC-147, was given mouse peritoneal macrophages and expression of ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) was examined. ABCA1 was increased...
Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) is a bioactive lipid mediator generated from sphingosine by sphingosine kinase (SPHK). S1P acts both extracellularly and intracellularly as a signaling molecule, although its intracellular targets are still undefined. Intracellular level of S1P is under strict...
Endothelial lipase (LIPG) is the latest addition to the triglyceride lipase family of genes that includes pancreatic lipase (PL), hepatic lipase (HL), and lipoprotein lipase (LPL). These lipolytic enzymes demonstrate both triglyceride lipase as well as phospholipase activities and are integrally...
Phospholipase D (PLD) is expressed in many tissues and stimulated by growth factors and cytokines. However, the role of PLD in signal transduction is still not well-understood. Human embryonic kidney (HEK-293) cells exhibit low levels of both PLD1 and PLD2 mRNA, however, only PLD1 protein was...
Phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) is made in mammalian cells by two PtdSer synthases, PSS1 and PSS2. In the plasma membrane PtdSer is normally localized on the inner leaflet but undergoes transbilayer movement during apoptosis and becomes exposed on the cell surface. We induced apoptosis with...
