Abstract

The absorption of phospholipid may improve the fluidity of membrane and enzyme activities. Phospholipids also play a role in promoting Caveolae formation and membrane synthesis. Caveolin-1 has a significant effect on signaling pathways involved in regulating cell proliferation and stress responsiveness. Thus, we can speculate that Caveolin-1 could affect the sense of environmental stress. We use Chang liver cell line to investigate the ability of Caveolin-1 to modulate the cellular response to ethanol injury. Caveolin-1 downregulate cells (Cav-1−/−) were established by stable transfecting with psiRNA-CAV1 plasmids, which were more sensitive to toxic effects of ethanol than the untransfected parental cells (WT). Releasing of ALT and electric conductivity were changed significantly in Cav-1−/− cells compared with WT. Caveolin-1 gene silencing could obviously down-regulate the activities of protein kinase C-α (PKC-α) and phospho-p42/44 MAP kinase, indicating cell proliferation and self-repairing abilities were inhibited. However, the levels of Caveolin-1 and PKC-α were increased by phosphatidylcholine administration. The results indicated that the inhibition of lipid peroxidation by phosphatidylcholine could lead to the prevention of membrane disruption, which closely correlated with the level of Caveolin-1. Since the protective effects of phosphatidylcholine against ethanol-induced lipid peroxidation might be regulated by phospholipid-PKC-α signaling pathway, related with Caveolin-1, the potential effects of phosphatidylcholine on membranes need to be verified.
