General description

Lyso-phosphatidylethanolamine (lysoPE) is a structural isomer which carries an oleic acid at the sn-1 position. This lipid occurs naturally.


18:1 Lyso PE (1-oleoyl-2-hydroxy-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine) has been used as a lipid standard in the optimization of the liquid chromatography−mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method conditions. It may be used to study its effects on [Ca2+]i in PC-12 neuronal cells, MDA-MB-231 and SK-OV3 cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lyso-phosphatidylethanolamine (lysoPE) can serve as a substrate for SocA, the short-chain alcohol dehydrogenase. It helps to delay the senescence in the plant parts.

Phospholipid signaling mediated by lipid-derived second messengers or biologically active lipids is still new and is not well established in plants. We recently have found that lysophosphatidylethanolamine (LPE), a naturally occurring lipid, retards senescence of leaves, flowers, and postharvest fruits....

Our understanding of phospholipid biosynthesis in Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria is derived from the prototypical Gram-negative organism Escherichia coli. The inner and outer membranes of E. coli are largely composed of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), minor amounts of phosphatidylglycerol (PG) and cardiolipin...

Previously, we reported that lysophosphatidylethanolamine (LPE), a lyso-type metabolite of phosphatidylethanolamine, can increase intracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)]i) via type 1 lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) receptor (LPA1) and CD97, an adhesion G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR), in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. Furthermore, LPE signaling was...

Short-chain alcohol dehydrogenases (SCADHs) synthesize a variety of intercellular signals and other chemically diverse products. It is difficult to predict the substrate of a SCADH on the basis of amino acid sequence homology, as the substrates are not known for...

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have been implicated in lysophosphatidylethanolamine (LPE)-induced increases in intracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)]i), but in different cell types, this response may be dependent or independent of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) GPCR. The effects of LPEs from Grifola frondosa on...
