The free fatty acid (FFA) concentration in the epididymal cytosol of the adult rat was found to be 20-fold higher than in the serum. The binding of [3H] dihydrotestosterone to epididymal rat androgen binding protein (rABP) was modified by physiological...

The polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, arachidonic acid ([AA] 20:4n-6), is both the key of the immunoregulatory substances, prostaglandins, and leukotrienes, and an essential component of immune cell membrane phospholipids, providing stability and flexibility to ensure cellular function. To explore possible...

The effect of oleate on the subcellular distribution of protein kinase C (PKC) was studied in isolated hepatocytes and in perfused rat liver in the presence of physiological concentrations of serum albumin. A time- and dose-dependent translocation of PKC from...

Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is important for the delivery of triglyceride fatty acids (TGFA) to a variety of tissues. We have used measurements of heparin-releasable LPL activity, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, and Northern analysis to more fully characterize the location of...

Oleic acid, a cis-unsaturated free fatty acid, is proposed to be involved in the protein kinase C (PKC) activation pathway. Its biological actions, however, have not been well-characterized. We examined the effects of oleic acid on acetylcholine (ACh)-gated channel currents...
