Lysophospholipids: their generation, physiological role and detection. Are they important disease markers?


, : Lysophospholipids: their generation, physiological role and detection. Are they important disease markers?. Mini Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry 9(3): 368-378

The concentration of lysophospholipids (LPL) increases under pathological conditions and, thus, LPL attract diagnostic and pharmacological interest. LPL are particularly interesting because they possess pro- and anti-inflammatory properties and can be generated by phospholipases and reactive oxygen species (ROS). This review provides an overview of the mechanisms by which LPL are generated and how they can be determined. The effects of LPL as signaling molecules and their roles in different pathologies are discussed. The focus will be on lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC).

Tumor suppression by p53 and BRCA1 involves regulation of cell cycle, apoptosis, and DNA repair and is influenced by transcriptional coactivators and post-translational modifications. Here we show that coactivator-associated arginine methyltransfe...
