Arachidonic acid regulates surface expression of epithelial sodium channels.


Epithelial Na+ channels (ENaCs) are regulated by the phospholipase A2 (PLA2) product arachidonic acid. Pharmacological inhibition of PLA2 with aristolochic acid induced a significant increase in amiloride-sensitive currents in Xenopus oocytes expressing ENaC. Arachidonic acid or 5,8,11,14-eicosatetraynoic acid (ETYA), a non-metabolized analog of arachidonic… (More)
