Elevated cytosolic phospholipase A(2) expression and activity in human neutrophils during sepsis.


Sepsis is defined as the systemic inflammatory response to infection. Phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) plays an important role in inflammation processes by initiating the production of inflammatory mediators. The role of cytosolic PLA (cPLA(2)) has not yet been identified in inflammatory and infectious disease clinical settings. The aim of the present research… (More)
