Phorbol ester plus calcium ionophore induces release of arachidonic acid from membrane phospholipids of a human B cell line.

Binding of LA350, a lymphoblastoid human B cell line, by phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) plus a calcium ionophore, either ionomycin or A23187, produced unique alterations in the release of arachidonic acid (AA) from cellular phospholipids. After equilibrium labeling of cells with radioactive fatty acids, [14C]AA demonstrated a selective enhanced release… CONTINUE READING
