Cell membranes are typically the initial point of signal perception and transduction. Phospholipids provide not only the structural base of cell membranes, but are also rich resources for generating cellular mediators. Such mediators include phosphatidic acid (PA), lysophospholipids, free fatty acids (FFAs), oxylipins, N-acylethanolamine, diacylglycerol (DAG), phosphoinositides, and water-soluble inositol polyphosphates. Each category of the above lipid regulators encompasses many molecular… CONTINUE READING
