The administration of 'acetylglyceryl ether phosphorylcholine' (AGEPC, also known as platelet-activating factor) and L-alpha-lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) to rat livers perfused with media containing 1.3 mM-Ca2+ was followed by a concentration-dependent efflux of Ca2+ from the liver. Near-maximal response was observed at 100 nM-AGEPC and 50 microM-LPC, and resulted in a net efflux of approx. 130 nmol of Ca2+/g of liver. Onset of Ca2+ efflux occurred about 10 s after AGEPC and LPC administration… CONTINUE READING
