Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids stimulate cell membrane expansion by acting on syntaxin 3

  author={Frederic D Darios and Bazbek A. Davletov},
Growth of neurite processes from the cell body is the critical step in neuronal development and involves a large increase in cell membrane surface area. Arachidonic-acid-releasing phospholipases are highly enriched in nerve growth cones and have previously been implicated in neurite outgrowth. Cell membrane expansion is achieved through the fusion of transport organelles with the plasma membrane; however, the identity of the molecular target of arachidonic acid has remained elusive. Here we… CONTINUE READING
