Heterogeneity of arachidonate and paf-acether precursor pools in mast cells.


In mammalian cells, arachidonate release and paf-acether formation are frequently associated. The alkyl-acyl-GPC has been proposed as an important source for released arachidonic acid and arachidonate-containing alkylacyl-GPC species as unique precursor for paf-acether. However, the specificity of precursor pools either concerning arachidonic acid or paf… (More)
