Alteration of antioxidant enzymes with aging in rat skeletal muscle and liver.
TLDR
It is concluded that aging is accompanied with an elevation of antioxidant enzyme activities and lipid peroxidation in skeletal muscle probably due to the increased oxygen free radical production and reaction. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae DPP1 Gene Encoding Diacylglycerol Pyrophosphate Phosphatase*
TLDR
Analysis of the mutant showed that the DPP1 gene was not responsible for all of the Mg2+-independent PA phosphatase activity in S. cerevisiae, and the dpp1Δ mutant was viable and did not exhibit any obvious growth defects. Expand
Lipid phosphate phosphohydrolase-1 degrades exogenous glycerolipid and sphingolipid phosphate esters.
TLDR
The product of LPP-1 cDNA is concluded to act partly to degrade exogenous lysophosphatidate and thereby regulate its effects on cell signalling. Expand
The Escherichia coli pgpB Gene Encodes for a Diacylglycerol Pyrophosphate Phosphatase Activity*
We provided genetic and biochemical evidence that supported the conclusion that the product of pgpB gene of Escherichia coli exhibited diacylglycerol pyrophosphate (DGPP) phosphatase activity. DGPPExpand
Myocardial aging: antioxidant enzyme systems and related biochemical properties.
TLDR
The data indicate that myocardial antioxidant capacity is weakened during aging and that the compensatory increases of mitochondrial SOD and GPX may be an important mechanism in coping with free radical damage in senescent heart. Expand

TLDR
DGPP is established as a novel macrophage-activating factor and a potential role for this compound in triggering homeostatic cellular responses is suggested. Expand
Mammalian Mg2+-independent Phosphatidate Phosphatase (PAP2) Displays Diacylglycerol Pyrophosphate Phosphatase Activity*
TLDR
It is indicated that rat liver PAP2 is a member of a phosphatase family that includes DGPP phosphatases from S. cerevisiae and E. coli, especially in localized regions that constitute a novelosphatase sequence motif. Expand
Lipid phosphate phosphohydrolase-1 degrades exogenous glycerolipid and sphingolipid phosphate esters
TLDR
The product of LPP-1 cDNA is concluded to act partly to degrade exogenous lysophosphatidate and thereby regulate its effects on cell signalling. Expand
Surface morphology of isolated cardiac myocytes from hypertrophied hearts of aging spontaneously hypertensive rats.
TLDR
Changes in cell morphology were interpreted as providing a protective effect against development of functional impairment in the hypertrophied hearts. Expand
Antioxidant enzyme response to exercise in equine erythrocytes
Summary The response of erythrocyte antioxidant enzymes to a single bout of treadmill exercise was investigated in the Quarter Horse with or without dietary supplementation of Vitamin E (Vit E). TenExpand
