The single-copy gene for the large subunit of ATP citrate lyase (ACL) from the alga Cyanophora paradoxa was characterized at the cDNA and genome levels. The gene product showed high sequence similarity to its mammalian counterparts, but is smaller in size, as is also found for the fungal subunit Acl1 and, most probably, for the corresponding subunit from(More)
Platelets are activated by the interaction with cancer cells and release enhanced levels of lipid mediators [such as thromboxane (TX)A2 and prostaglandin (PG)E2, generated from arachidonic acid (AA) by the activity of cyclooxygenase (COX)-1], granule content, including ADP and growth factors, chemokines, proteases and Wnt proteins. Moreover, activated(More)
