An Asp49 Phospholipase A2 from Snake Venom Induces Cyclooxygenase-2 Expression and Prostaglandin E2 Production via Activation of NF-κB, p38MAPK, and PKC in Macrophages
Phospholipases A2 (PLA2) are key enzymes for production of lipid mediators. We previously demonstrated that a snake venom sPLA2 named MT-III leads to prostaglandin (PG)E2 biosynthesis in macrophages by inducing the expression ...
A catalytically-inactive snake venom Lys49 phospholipase A2 homolog induces expression of cyclooxygenase-2 and production of prostaglandins through selected signaling pathways in macrophages
The effects of a snakevenom Lys-49phospholipaseA2 (PLA2) homolog named MT-II,devoid of enzymatic activity, on the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and protein expression of cyclooxygenase-2(COX-2) and signaling pathways ...
