Inhibiting long-chain fatty acyl CoA synthetase does not increase agonist-induced release of arachidonate metabolites from human endothelial cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Triacsin C, a fatty acid analog, inhibits endothelial nitric oxide synthetase (eNOS) palmitoylation, increases nitric oxide synthesis and enhances methacholine-induced relaxation of vascular rings. The experiments presented here tested the hypothesis that triacsin C increases the synthesis of PGI(2) and/or endothelial-derived hyperpolarizing… (More)
