Modulation of purified phospholipase A2 activity from human platelets by calcium and indomethacin

Biochimica Et Biophysica Acta
R L Jesse, R C Franson


A membrane bound phospholipase A2 (phosphatide 2-acylhydrolase, EC from human platelets has been purified 3500-fold, and partially characterized. Phospholipase A2 activity was assayed using [1(-14)C] oleate-labeled Escherichia coli or sonicated dispersions of synthetic phospholipids. The 2-acyl specificity of the phospholipase activity was confirmed using phosphatidylethanolamine labeled in the C-1 position as substrate. The purified enzyme was maximally active between pH 8.0 and 10.5, and had an absolute requirement for low concentrations of Ca2+. Indomethacin, but not aspirin, inhibited phospholipase A2 activity.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
