The highly efficient formation of phosphatidic acid from exogenous 1-stearoyl-2-arachidonoyl-sn-glycerol (SAG) in rat brain synaptic nerve endings (synaptosomes) from cerebral cortex and hippocampus is reported. Phosphatidic acid synthesized from SAG or 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycerol (DPG) was 17.5 or 2.5 times higher, respectively, than from endogenous synaptosomal diacylglycerides. Insulin increased diacylglycerol kinase (DAGK) action on endogenous substrate in synaptic terminals from… Expand
Insulin modifies aging-related inhibition of 1-stearoyl, 2-arachidonoylglycerol phosphorylation in rat synaptic terminals
TLDR
Findings indicate that in aged rats insulin triggers a stimulatory mechanism that reverts the diminished synaptosomal ability to synthesize arachidonoyl phosphatidic acid (20:4 PA) and the recovery of this PA species indicates that insulin positively regulates phosphoinositide synthesis. Expand
Insulin-related signaling pathways elicited by light in photoreceptor nuclei from bovine retina.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the presence and the functional state of IR in the nucleus from photoreceptor cells and show that molecular signaling components linked to tyrosine kinase receptors and MAPK pathways, such as Akt and ERK1/2, respectively, are present inPhotoreceptor nuclei and are regulated by insulin and light.

Substrate specificity of diacylglycerol kinase‐epsilon and the phosphatidylinositol cycle
TLDR
It is suggested that in addition to binding to the enzyme, the acyl chain at the sn‐1 position may contribute to the depth of insertion of the DAG into the membrane. Expand
Do β-Defensins and Other Antimicrobial Peptides Play a Role in Neuroimmune Function and Neurodegeneration?
TLDR
Evidence is presented for the hypothesis that neuropathological changes associated with chronic disease conditions of the CNS involve abnormal expression and regulatory function of specific antimicrobial peptides and that these alterations exacerbate proinflammatory conditions within the brain that ultimately potentiate the neurodegenerative process.

Phosphatidic acid and diacylglycerol generation is regulated by insulin in cerebral cortex synaptosomes from adult and aged rats
TLDR
The results show that insulin modulates PA and D AG availability through the regulation of PLD/PAP2 and DAGK pathways in adult rat CC synaptosomes, and it is demonstrated that PA andDAG generation is regulated differentially by insulin during aging. Expand
Insulin promotes diacylglycerol kinase activation by different mechanisms in rat cerebral cortex synaptosomes
TLDR
The data indicate that the increased synthesis of PA by insulin could be mediated by the activation of both a PC‐PLD pathway to provide DAG and a direct DAGK activation that is associated to the use of 18:0‐20:4 DAG species. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that PA generation (PLD activity) and degradation (PAPase activity) are differentially modulated during the aging process. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that DGKɛ contributes to modulate neuronal signaling pathways linked to synaptic activity, neuronal plasticity, and epileptogenesis. Expand

TLDR
Under conditions where breakdown of polyphosphoinositides by phospholipase C was dependent on PtdIns kinase activity, fluoride inhibited activation by GTP[S] plus carbachol of phospholIPase C. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that, in cerebral-cortical membranes, activation of phospholipase C by guanine nucleotides or fluoride directly increases a phospholIPase C activity which specifically hydrolyses PIP2. Expand

TLDR
The data show that fluoride, at a concentration similar to that used to stimulate directly Gq/11‐coupled phospholipase C, effectively blocks the synthesis of phospholIPase C substrates from PtdIns. Expand
Arachidonoyl-diacylglycerol Kinase SPECIFIC IN VITRO INHIBITION BY POLYPHOSPHOINOSITIDES SUGGESTS A MECHANISM FOR REGULATION OF PHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL BIOSYNTHESIS (*)
TLDR
Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate is shown to be a potent and specific inhibitor of arachidonoyl-diacylglycerol kinase, and may represent a mechanism for polyphosphoinositides to regulate their own synthesis. Expand
Regulation of diacylglycerol kinase reaction in Swiss 3T3 cells. Increased phosphorylation of endogenous diacylglycerol and decreased phosphorylation of didecanoylglycerol in response to platelet-derived growth factor.
TLDR
PDGF stimulates the phosphorylation of cellular diacylglycerol by promoting a transient accumulation of this lipid and a membrane-bound enzyme accounted for the PDGF effect on PA formation; there was no evidence for translocation of cytosolic enzyme to the membrane. Expand

A novel mechanism by which insulin signalling mediates tyrosine kinase activity and autophosphorylation of the IR through recruitment of G(i)-proteins is defined. Expand
