We have recently demonstrated that the phospholipid platelet-activating factor (PAF) mediates an autocrine proliferative loop in the endometrial adenocarcinoma cell line HEC-1A. In the present study we investigated the signaling pathways involved in PAF-mediated increase of proliferation in these...
Mouse oocytes and zygotes, when solubilised demonstrated that a range of ketoaldehydes could be utilised as substrates. Of the five ketoaldehydes investigated the overall substrate utilisation was hydroxypyruvate>glyoxylate>2-ketobutyrate>pyruvate>glycolate. The utilisation of these ketoaldehydes...
Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase D (GPI-PLD) (EC 22.214.171.124) from mammalian serum is a 115 kDa glycoprotein consisting of 816 amino acids. We found that C-terminal deletions of only two to five amino acids reduced GPI-PLD enzymatic activity by roughly 70% as compared to wild-type...
