Related to phosphatidic acid: Phosphatidylserine

phos·pha·tid·ic ac·id

(fos'fă-tid'ik as'id),
1,2-Diacylglycerol phosphate; a derivative of glycerophosphoric acid in which the two remaining hydroxyl groups of the glycerol are esterified with fatty acids; for example, phosphatidic acids attached to choline are phosphatidylcholines (lecithins).

Lowering DAG, by microinjection of enzymes that either lower its precursor phosphatidylinositol (4,5) bisphosphate ([PIP.sub.2]) or directly convert it to phosphatidic acid, delays or inhibits the membrane fusion leading to formation of the nuclear envelope, and transforms the ER into extended sheet structures at the expense of the more highly curved tubules.
On the other hand, cyclic phosphatidic acid (cPA), similar in structure to LPA, can be generated by phospholipase D2 (PLD2) and negatively regulate PPAR[gamma] functions (Figure 1).
