Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a bioactive lipid that is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes occurring in the gastrointestinal tract. It acts via six distinct types of receptors, LPA1, LPA2, LPA3, LPA4, LPA5 and LPA6, which belong to the family of G protein-coupled receptors. The aim of the present study was to detect the expression of the LPA receptors in the human lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Quantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blotting were… CONTINUE READING
