  • 4. This is also consistent with the suggestion, made in a recent report showing that cystic fibrosis isolates of P. aeruginosa had lipid A isoforms derivatized with aminoarabinose (or palmitate), that these structural modifications could enhance resistance to cationic antimicrobial peptides [ 61 ] . Although the acyl chains of lipid A might also provide alternative binding sites for protegrin, the orientation of lipid A on the HPA sensor chip ("butter-side down") probably removes them from consideration, at least under our study conditions.

  • The modules each contain an acyl transferase (to load the extender unit onto the enzyme), as well as a ketosynthase and an ACP domain, together with exactly those reductive activities needed to generate the required pattern of modification of the chain at each step of elongation.

  • The only biochemically characterized eukaryotic representative of this superfamily is LRAT, which transfers an acyl group from the sn-1 position of phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) to retinal, to form retinyl esters [ 27, 42, 43].

  • The incorporation of 20:4n6 and 22:4n6 following feeding of the AA-rich FUNG diet, and the incorporation of 20:5n3, 22:5n3, and 22:6n3 following feeding of the EPA/DHA-rich FISH diet, into whole brain, hippocampal, and hepatic phospholipid (PL) pools (Table 1) was further evidence the diets were consumed, resulting in significant changes to PL acyl composition.

  • In the case of pNPP hydrolysis, others have reported both saturated and unsaturated fatty acyl coenzyme A esters stimulate PP5 activity, with concentrations required for half-maximal stimulation approximately 10-fold lower than those of their corresponding free fatty acids [ 21 ] . We therefore tested whether a saturated fatty acyl coenzyme A ester could also stimulate Ppt1p.
