General description

Phosphatidic acid (PA) is a diacyl-glycerophospholipid, with two fatty acids and a phosphate group that are covalently attached to a glycerol molecule through ester linkages. PA is synthesized by the activity of the endogenous enzyme phospholipase D or by supplementation with soy lecithin.


Soy PA is suitable for use to study its effect on cell proliferation, nutrient sensing and to examine metabolic pathways in primary muscle cells of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phosphatidic acid (PA) is a prime glycerophospholipid present in the biomembrane and is a precursor for phosphatidylcholine or phosphatidylserine. It has different functions in the cells like influencing the membrane curvature and signaling.

It is commonly assumed that all phagosomes have identical molecular composition. This assumption has remained largely unchallenged due to a paucity of methods to distinguish individual phagosomes. We devised an assay that extends the utility of nitro blue tetrazolium for...

Macrophages and dendritic cells continuously survey their environment in search of foreign particles and soluble antigens. Such surveillance involves the ongoing extension of actin-rich protrusions and the consequent formation of phagosomes and macropinosomes. The signals inducing this constitutive cytoskeletal remodeling...

Phosphatidylinositol (PI) 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) at the plasma membrane (PM) constitutively controls many cellular functions, and its hydrolysis via receptor stimulation governs cell signaling. The PI transfer protein Nir2 is essential for replenishing PM PIP2 following receptor-induced hydrolysis, but key mechanistic...
