An axolemma-enriched fraction prepared from a purified myelinated axon fraction isolated from rat CNS was found to contain phospholipase D at a specific activity similar to that of a microsomal fraction isolated from whole brain. There was a concomitant threefold enrichment in the specific activity of phospholipase D and acetylcholinesterase in the(More)
The hydrolytic and transphosphatidylation activities of rat brain microsomal phospholipase D were highly latent in the absence of an appropriate activator. The most suitable surfactants for this activation were oleate and palmitoleate. Besides the bile acids and unsaturated fatty acids, other naturally occurring surfactants, such as lysophospholipids,(More)
