Disease relevance of Usaf do-50


High impact information on Usaf do-50

  • Hepatocytes were treated with 400 microM monomethylethanolamine overnight, which resulted in an increase in the cellular content of the derived phospholipid, phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine, from 0.32 +/- 0.15 to 2.92 +/- 0.74 nmol/mg of cell protein [5].
  • Moreover, the pool of apoprotein B present in intact microsomes from hepatocytes incubated with monomethylethanolamine was more accessible to exogenously added trypsin, presumably because a larger pool of the apoprotein B was exposed on the cytosolic surface of these microsomes [5].
  • Since ethanolamine is a product of PLD, we hypothesised that an administration of an analogue of ethanolamine, N-methylethanolamine (MEA), decreases PLD activity through a negative feedback mechanism, suppresses collagen accumulation, and thus prevents organ dysfunction [1].
  • Although MME failed to effectively inhibit either reaction, an unexpected enhancement of choline kinase activity was observed specifically with the GmCK1-encoded enzyme [6].
  • Secretion of VLDL, but not HDL, by rat hepatocytes is inhibited by the ethanolamine analogue N-monomethylethanolamine [7].

  • However, most of the newly synthesized IgG1 was not secreted by monomethylethanolamine-supplemented cells, even after 5 h; it remained within the cells [15].
  • Supplementation of the medium with monomethylethanolamine resulted in a 2-fold increase in labeled GPC, with a concomitant decrease of [3H]lysoPC by approx. 25% [16].
