Application Methods: Immunoprecipitation, Western Blotting

Background: The 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate-O-acyltransferase 2 enzyme (AGPAT2) catalyzes the acylation of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) into phosphatidic acid (PA), which is a precursor for the synthesis of triacylglycerol and phospholipid (1,2). AGPAT2 is highly expressed in adipose tissues, liver, and skeletal muscle (3). The induced knockdown of AGPAT2 expression results in decreased expression of adipogenic proteins and delayed expression of adipogenic marker proteins, suggesting that AGPAT2 plays an important role in adipocyte growth and differentiation (4). Mutations in the corresponding AGPAT2 gene cause autosomal recessive congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 1 (CGL1), also described as Berardinelli-Seip syndrome. Patients with CGL1 are born without detectable white adipose tissue and tend to develop severe insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, and type 2 diabetes during childhood (5,6).

Application Methods: Immunoprecipitation, Western Blotting

Background: Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) is a ubiquitously distributed enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of the sn-2 acyl bond of glycerolipids to produce lysophospholipids and release arachidonic acid (1). cPLA2 has been implicated in diverse cellular responses such as mitogenesis, differentiation, inflammation and cytotoxicity (1). Calcium binding to the amino-terminal CalB domain of cPLA2 promotes the translocation of cPLA2 from cytosol to membrane, where cPLA2 cleaves arachidonic acid from natural membrane (2). Phosphorylation of cPLA2 by MAPK (p42/44 and p38) at Ser505 (3,4) and Ser727 (5) stimulates its catalytic activity.
