Lipid raft-associated cholesterol has been identified as a pivotal player among membrane lipids in regulating cellular functions. Cholesterol of the vascular endothelial cell (EC) membranes is also being recognized as an important element in the vascular EC signaling. However, methods utilized in studying the important role of lipid raft-associated(More)
Earlier, we reported that mercury, the environmental risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, activates vascular endothelial cell (EC) phospholipase D (PLD). Here, we report the novel and significant finding that calcium and calmodulin regulated mercury-induced PLD activation in bovine pulmonary artery ECs (BPAECs). Mercury (mercury chloride, 25 microM;(More)
The importance of understanding the mechanisms of modulation of cellular signaling cascades by the peroxidized membrane phospholipids (PLs) is well recognized. The enzyme-catalyzed peroxidation of PLs, as opposed to their oxidation by air and metal catalysis, is well controlled and rapid and yields well-defined PL peroxides which are highly desirable for(More)
