Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) activity was measured and partially characterized in prostasomes isolated from human seminal plasma. The results show high PLA2 activity in seminal plasma with a threefold enrichment in the isolated prostasomes. Highest activity was found at pH 8.0 and 10.5, and there was an absolute requirement for calcium with almost total… CONTINUE READING
