Lysophospholipids trigger calcium signals but not DNA synthesis in cortical astrocytes.

Abstract

Astrocytes generate calcium signals and proliferate in response to a growth factor-like lipid bound to plasma and serum albumin, in a process likely to be important in the formation of glial scars. A number of potential candidates for the physiologically active lipid were investigated. Lysophosphatidic acid, lysophosphatidylcholine, sphingomyelin, and… (More)
