Inducing effects of clofibric acid on 1-acylglycerophosphorylcholine acyltransferase in kidney and intestinal mucosa of rats.
TLDR
In both kidney and liver, a marked dose-dependent increase in the activities of both microsomal 1-acyl-GPC acyltransferase and peroxisomal beta-oxidation was observed and lasted throughout the 8-week treatment period of rat with clofibric acid. Expand
Co-induction by peroxisome proliferators of microsomal 1-acylglycerophosphocholine acyltransferase with peroxisomal beta-oxidation in rat liver.
TLDR
It is suggested that a similar regulatory mechanism operates for the inductions of microsomal 1-acyl-GPC acyltransferase and peroxisomal beta-oxidation. Expand
Vanadium-binding proteins (vanabins) from a vanadium-rich ascidian Ascidia sydneiensis samea.
TLDR
Vanabins are the first proteins reported to show specific binding to vanadium ions; this should provide a clue to resolving the problem regarding the selective accumulation of vanadium in ascidians. Expand
Role of stearoyl-CoA desaturase and 1-acylglycerophosphorylcholine acyltransferase in the regulation of the acyl composition of phosphatidylcholine in rat liver.
TLDR
The role of stearoyl-CoA desaturase and 1-acylglycerophosphorylcholine (1-ACYlGPC) acyltransferase in regulating acyl composition of microsomal phosphatidylcholine was investigated in rat liver, finding a reverse linear correlation between 18:1 and 18:2 in the C-2 position, and a similar correlation was found in microsomal free fatty acids.
