Serotonin-stimulated phospholipase A2 and collagenase activation in chondrocytes from human osteoarthritic articular cartilage.

Abstract

We have previously described several receptors on the chondrocyte membrane. In an attempt to further characterize the coupling mechanisms of serotoninergic receptors, here we examined the involvement of serotonin in the phospholipase A2 activity. Serotonin dose-dependently stimulated phospholipase A2. This activation enhanced collagenase type II activity… (More)
