Human type IIA secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2-IIA) is induced in association with several immune-mediated inflammatory conditions. We have evaluated the effect of sPLA2-IIA on PG production in primary synovial fibroblasts from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). At concentrations found in the synovial fluid of RA patients, exogenously added sPLA2-IIA dose-dependently amplified TNF-alpha-stimulated PGE2 production by cultured synovial fibroblasts. Enhancement of TNF-alpha-stimulated PGE2… CONTINUE READING
