We previously reported that treatment of human erythrocytes with bee venom phospholipase A2 increased the rate of lactate production from glucose. This increase was suggested to be mediated through liberation of free fatty acids from membrane phospholipids. So, in the present study we examined the mechanism of stimulation of glycolysis by fatty acids. Treatment of intact erythrocytes with most of the 15 fatty acids tested resulted in stimulation of lactate production from glucose. Among the… CONTINUE READING
