General description

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is an essential metabolite for membrane biosynthesis. LPA interacts with the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), called the LPA receptor and mediates signaling. Oleoyl-L-α-lysophosphatidic acid activates the receptor LPA4. In keratinocytes, oleoyl-L-α-lysophosphatidic acid promotes growth to some extent.


Oleoyl-L-α-lysophosphatidic acid sodium salt has been used:
  • for the activation of Ras homolog gene family, member A (RhoA) and expression of claudin-1 in human breast cancer epithelial cell line
  • in RH7777 cells for cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) accumulation assay and calcium mobilisation assay
  • in vitro luciferase assay and live-cell imaging

Biochem/physiol Actions

Endogenous agonist for LPA1 and LPA2 receptors. LPA does not induce angiogenesis, but has effects on endothelial cell physiology that are similar to those of sphingosine 1-phosphate. Induces cell migration of cancer and non-cancer cells.

This review discusses multiple effects of sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) on endothelial cells and proposes that S1P and LPA are important regulators of the vascular system. Two physiologic sources of S1P and LPA are platelets and lipoproteins.
