Lysophosphatidic acid stimulates two ion currents in cultured human retinal pigment epithelial cells.

Abstract

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a simple phospholipid that can be released from thrombin-activated platelets and growth factor-activated fibroblasts. The effects of this lipid signaling molecule on membrane currents of cultured human retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells were investigated using whole cell recording techniques. Bath application of LPA evoked… (More)
