Suppression of mitochondrial function by oxidatively truncated phospholipids is reversible, aided by bid, and suppressed by Bcl-XL.


Oxidatively truncated phospholipids are present in atherosclerotic lesions, apoptotic cells, and oxidized low density lipoproteins. Some of these lipids rapidly enter cells to induce apoptosis by the intrinsic pathway, but how such lipids initiate this process is unknown. We show the truncated phospholipid hexadecyl azelaoyl glycerophosphocholine (Az-LPAF… (More)
