The polyphosphoinositides fromTrypanosoma cruzi were isolated by preparative thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and identified. When myo-[3H]inositol was present in the culture medium for five days, analyses showed the presence of phosphatidylinositol (PI), lysophosphatidylinositol (lysoPI), phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PIP) and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2). Short-term incubation with32Pi led to higher percentages of incorporation into phosphatidylethanolamine (PE… Expand
Culture age and carbamoylcholine increase the incorporation of endogenously synthesized linoleic acid in lipids of Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes.
TLDR
The results indicate that T cruzi is able to synthesize the main types of fatty acids required to form its membrane lipids, and to exchange them actively in response to environmental stimuli. Expand
Phospholipid and glycolipid composition of acidocalcisomes of Trypanosoma cruzi.
TLDR
Results indicate that acidocalcisomes of T. cruzi have a distinct lipid and carbohydrate composition. Expand
Phospholipid and phospholipase changes by jasmonic acid during stolon to tuber transition of potato
TLDR
Phospholipids may play a role in activation of an intracellular mechanism that switches the developmental fate of stolon meristem cells, causing differentiation into a tuber. Expand
Regulation of Phosphatidic Acid Levels in Trypanosoma cruzi
TLDR
It is suggested that the regulation of PtdOH metabolism is an important mechanism in the transition from T. cruzi epimastigote to intermediate form and progressive increases of PTDOH levels during the differentiation process. Expand
InsP3 Signaling in Apicomplexan Parasites
TLDR
Evidence to supporting IP3-dependent signaling cascades in apicomplexans suggests that they may harbor a primitive or non-canonical InsP3R, which may be informative about early branching eukaryotes, where such signaling pathways also diverge from animal systems. Expand
Lipid metabolism in Trypanosoma cruzi: a review.
TLDR
Although many enzymes involved in lipid synthesis have yet to be characterised, completed experiments have shown the indispensability of some lipid metabolic pathways and the bioactive lipids of Trypanosoma cruzi and their effects on the host are becoming increasingly studied. Expand

Abstract Plants are exposed to a great variety of environmental factors, which can affect their survival. In addition, the rapid urbanization and the increased release of different pollutants, suchExpand
Gibberellin Signaling Pathway:Role of Phospholipids in Barley Aleurone
TLDR
The possible reasons why the changes in synthesis and turnover of phosphoinositide are required for GA signaling pathway are discussed and why it may be a critical event in the control of secretion in aleurone are discussed. Expand
Δ9 desaturase from Trypanosoma cruzi: Key enzyme in the parasite metabolism. Cloning and overexpression.
TLDR
The existence of Δ9 desaturase activity in epimastigotes of the Trypanosoma cruzi Tulahuen strain is demonstrated and it is considered that it plays a critical role in the metabolism of the parasite. Expand
Polyamines modify the components of phospholipids-based signal transduction pathway in Coffea arabica L. cells.
TLDR
The results presented here suggest that Pas may modulate the cellular signal of C. arabica cells by differentially affecting components of the phospholipid cascade. Expand

TLDR
Experiments in vivo using [Me-14C]methionine showed incorporation of radioactivity into the choline portion of phosphatidylcholine, and the transfer of the methyl group of [ Me- 14 C ] S - adenosyl - l - methionine to form lecithin was demonstrated in cell-free systems. Expand

Regulation of protein kinase C by lysophospholipids. Potential role in signal transduction.
TLDR
The present findings suggested that lyso-PC, likely derived from membrane PC by the action of phospholipase A2, might play a role in signal transduction via a dual regulation of protein kinase C, and that it could further modulate the enzyme and hence the cellular activity by interplaying with diacylglycerol and unsaturated fatty acid, the two other classes of cellular mediators also shown to be activators of protein Kinase C.

Two quantitatively minor phosphorylated derivatives of phosphatidylinositol, known collectively as the polyphosphoinositides, have an extremely rapid 32 P turnover rate and are presumed to be localized predominantly in the plasma membranes. Expand

TLDR
The appearance of another novel phosphoinositide containing four phosphates, phosphatidylinositol trisphosphate (PtdInsP3) which is found only in activated but not in unstimulated neutrophils from human donors suggests that several forms ofosphoinositides may exist and could be precursors for some of the variety of soluble inositol phosphate products.
