Phospholipase A/acyltransferase (PLA/AT)-3 (also known as H-rev107 or AdPLA) was originally isolated as a tumor suppressor and was later shown to have phospholipase A1/A2 activity. We have also found that the overexpression of PLA/AT-3 in mammalian cells results in specific...

Neutrophils are important in the host response against invading pathogens. One chemical defense mechanism employed by neutrophils involves the production of myeloperoxidase (MPO)-derived HOCl. 2-Chlorohexadecanal (2-ClHDA) is a naturally occurring lipid product of HOCl targeting the vinyl ether bond of...

Adding cholesterol to monolayers of certain phospholipids drives the separation of liquid-ordered from liquid-disordered domains. The ordered phases appear to contain stoichiometric complexes of cholesterol and phospholipid. Furthermore, it has been suggested that the cholesterol in these complexes has a...
