Synthesis of phospholipids by human peritoneal mesothelial cells.


OBJECTIVE To assess the capacity of cultured human peritoneal mesothelial cells to synthesize choline-containing phospholipids. The study compares the phospholipids secreted from cultured cells with those which we, and others, have identified in the dialysate of patients treated by continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). PATIENTS CAPD effluent… (More)
