CGI-58 facilitates lipolysis on lipid droplets but is not involved in the vesiculation of lipid droplets caused by hormonal stimulation Published, JLR Papers in Press, February 17, 2007.
A lipid droplet (LD)-associated protein, perilipin, is a critical regulator of lipolysis in adipocytes. We previously showed that Comparative Gene Identification-58 (CGI-58), a product of the causalExpand

S1P3-mediated cardiac fibrosis in sphingosine kinase 1 transgenic mice involves reactive oxygen species.
AIMS Sphingosine kinase 1 (SPHK1), its product sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), and S1P receptor subtypes have been suggested to play protective roles for cardiomyocytes in animal models of ischaemicExpand

Phospholipids from the free-living nematodeCaenorhabditis elegans
The phospholipid and the fatty chain compositions of diacyl, alkylacyl and alkenylacyl glycerophospholipids of the free-living nematode,Caenorhabditis elegans, were investigated. The phospholipidsExpand

Effects of Growth Temperature on the Fatty Acid Composition of the Free-Living Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
The effects of growth temperature on the fatty acid compositions of the phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), and total lipid (TL) fractions of the free-living nematodeExpand

Human platelets respond differentially to lysophosphatidic acids having a highly unsaturated fatty acyl group and alkyl ether-linked lysophosphatidic acids.
Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a physiological agonist that is produced by lysophospholipase D, phospholipase A(1) and phospholipase A(2) in the blood of animals. It exerts diverse biological actionsExpand

Formation of Lysophosphatidic Acid, a Wound-Healing Lipid, during Digestion of Cabbage Leaves
Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a lipid mediator that plays a role in the process of wound healing in animal tissues, including the digestive tract. We determined LPA in several foodstuffs, and foundExpand

Orally Administered Phosphatidic Acids and Lysophosphatidic Acids Ameliorate Aspirin-Induced Stomach Mucosal Injury in Mice
BackgroundRecent investigations revealed that lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a phospholipid with a growth factor-like activity, plays an important role in the integrity of the gastrointestinal tractExpand

Quantification of phosphatidic acid in foodstuffs using a thin-layer-chromatography-imaging technique.
Apical application of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a growth-factor-like phospholipid, was shown to prevent or restore gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, such as diarrhea and stomach ulcer, inExpand

Molecular species of platelet-activating factor generated by human neutrophils challenged with ionophore A23187.
Two species of platelet-activating factor (PAF), 1-hexadecyl- and 1-octadecyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (C16 = 0 AGEPC and C18 = 0 AGEPC) were detected in ionophore A23187-stimulated humanExpand
