(fŏs′fə-tīd′)
phos′pha·tid′ic (-tĭd′ĭk) adj.

phosphatide

[fos′fətīd]
phosphatidic acid or any of its esters. Phosphatidic acid (diacylglycerol phosphate) consists of glycerol esterified to phosphoric acid and to two fatty acids. Phosphatides are major components of cell membranes. Also called phosphoglyceride, phosphotidate.

Anil Agarwal, Professor of Internal Medicine, said that their study establishes a role for phosphatidic acids in enhancing glucose production by the liver and identifies enzymes involved in the synthesis of phosphatidic acids as potential drug targets.
In addition, it has been shown that phospholipase D (PLD) and phosphatidic acid (PA) activate mTOR and p70S6K, independent of IGF-1 (Hornberger et al.
Now, by using a cabbage-derived enzyme to transphosphatidylate phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine from soy lecithin into phosphatidylserine, Lipogen is one the world's two largest phosphatidylserine producers, offering a natural, "clean" and 100% solvent-free manufacturing process for PS and phosphatidic acid (PA).
Phosphatidic acid (PA) and Cardiolipin (CAR) in the phospholipids fraction were not identified in the [sup.
That is to say, PKC-[alpha] translocated to the plasmalemmal compartment activates plasmalemmal phospholipase D1, (33) which, in turn, leads to the release of phosphatidic acid, the product of phospholipase D enzymatic activity.

The second nonoxidative pathway requires the enzyme phospholipase D (PLD) (Laposata 1999), which breaks down phospholipids (primarily phosphatidylcholine) to generate phosphatidic acid (PA).
SAGE analysis revealed the expression changes of genes related to lipid metabolism [crystalline, zeta (Cryz); phosphatidic acid phosphatase type 2c (PPap2c)], carbohydrate metabolism [phosphoglycerate kinase 1 (Pgk1); sorbitol dehydrogenase 1 (Sdh1)], and amino acid metabolism (glutamate dehydrogenase (Glud); ornithine decarboxylase, structural (Odc).
Phospholipase D (PLD) is a widely distributed regulatory enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine to phosphatidic acid and choline.
This mechanism involves CT-2584's effect on tumor-cell phospholopids such as phosphatidic acid (PA), which is believed to play an active role in neoplastic cell transformation.
PSPA is a natural, high-quality blend of phosphatidylserine (PS) and phosphatidic acid (PA).
