BACKGROUND Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) like oleic acid have been shown to cause apoptosis of cultured endothelial cells by activating protein phosphatase type 2C alpha and beta (PP2C). The question arises whether damage of endothelial or other cells could be observed in intact animals fed with a trioleate-enriched diet. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL(More)
In previous work we have demonstrated that protein phosphatase type 2C (PP2C) alpha and beta can be activated by mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) leading to apoptosis of cultured endothelial cells. In the present paper we could show that saturated fatty acids (SFAs) did not activate PP2C and did not cause apoptosis both in endothelial cells and(More)
Certain unsaturated fatty acids (UFAs), cleaved from lipoproteins, are known to activate the serine/threonine protein phosphatase type 2C (PP2C) alpha- and beta-isoforms. To investigate the role of UFAs in apoptosis of endothelial cells, we cocultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) with THP-1 monocytes. Phorbol-12-myristic-13-acetate(More)
