Platelet-activating factor (PAF) acetylhydrolase, which inactivates PAF by removing the acetyl group at the sn-2 position, is widely distributed in plasma and tissues. We previously demonstrated that tissue cytosol contains at least two types of PAF acetylhydrolase, isoforms Ib and II, and that isoform Ib is a heterotrimer comprising 45-, 30-, and 29-kDa subunits, whereas isoform II is a 40-kDa monomer. In this study, we isolated cDNA clones of bovine and human PAF acetylhydrolase isoform II… CONTINUE READING
