Polyunsaturated fatty acids are involved at several steps in the turnover of phosphatidylinositol mediated by alpha 1-adrenoceptors. We have cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes in a medium containing docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6n3) and have investigated the effects produced by the change in the fatty acid composition of phosphatidylinositol on alpha 1-adrenoceptor-mediated phosphatidylinositol metabolism. The experimental cells, in which phosphatidylinositol was significantly enriched in… CONTINUE READING
