Bile salt-dependent lipase (BSDL, E.C. 3.1.1.-) is a digestive enzyme secreted by the pancreatic acinar cell. Once in the duodenum, the enzyme, upon activation by primary bile salts, hydrolyzes dietary lipid esters such as cholesteryl esters and lipid-soluble vitamin esters. This enzyme is partially transferred from the duodenum or pancreas to the(More)
Bile-salt-dependent lipase (BSDL, EC 3.1.1.-) is an enzyme expressed by the pancreatic acinar cells and secreted as a component of the pancreatic juice of all examined species. During its secretion route BSDL is associated with intracellular membranes. This association allows the complete glycosylation of the enzyme or participates in the inhibition of the(More)
Challenging intact erythrocytes from naive rats with ethanol resulted in dose-dependent decreases in rates of acylation of phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine. In erythrocytes from ethanol-treated animals, the responses were of lesser magnitude, indicating a lower sensitivity to ethanol. This relative resistance, typical of the state of(More)
Previous studies have postulated the presence of a heparin-binding site on the bile salt-dependent lipase (BSDL), whereas two bile salt-binding sites regulate the enzyme activity. One of these sites may overlap with the tentative heparin-binding site at the level of an N-terminal basic cluster consisting of positive residues Lys(32), Lys(56), Lys(61),(More)
We examined the effects of the in vivo administration of ethanol on lipolytic activities assayed in rat post-heparin heart effluents, that hydrolyse tri-, di- and monoacylglycerol. Properties of triacylglycerol lipase (TAGL) are typical of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) whereas diacylglycerol (DAGL) and monoacylglycerol (MAGL) lipase activities hydrolyse(More)
In this article, we report the nucleotide sequence of the cDNA encoding an isoform of bile-salt-dependent lipase (BSDL) expressed by human hepatoma cells. The BSDL is a 100-kDa glycoprotein normally expressed by the human pancreas. Using a polyclonal antibody raised against an internal peptide located between Ile(327) and Glu(350) of the human pancreatic(More)
Biological activities of estrogen molecules are altered by fluorination of ring A, and the resulting impairment to form catechols. 2-fluoroestradiol (2-F-E2) has been found to be devoid of carcinogenic action despite its high estrogenic potency; its metabolic effects are so far unknown. This study was designed to investigate the effects of 2-F-E2 on lipid(More)
A membrane-bound monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) activity, previously demonstrated in intact human erythrocytes [Boyer, Somma, Vérine, L'Hôte, Finidori, Merger and Arnaud (1981) J. Clin. Endocrinol. Metab. 53, 143-148], has now been purified to apparent homogeneity by a five-step procedure involving solubilization in CHAPS and sequential chromatographies on(More)
