Can refer to something eating away at one’s insides. Alternatively, maybe an idea, a relationship, or a product is going through the “acid test.” Might also allude to an “acid tongue.”

ACID

(programming)
A mnemonic for the properties a transaction should have to satisfy the Object Management Group Transaction Service specifications. A transaction should be Atomic, its result should be Consistent, Isolated (independent of other transactions) and Durable (its effect should be permanent).

The Transaction Service specifications which part of the Object Services, an adjunct to the CORBA specifications.

ACID

(Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, Durable) The properties of a transaction in a well-designed database management system (DBMS). The transaction must be ATOMIC (all updating tasks must be completed or nothing is done), CONSISTENT (it cannot leave the database in a state that violates any integrity rules), ISOLATED (remain invisible to other operations until completed) and DURABLE (will complete or be reversed if the system fails in the interim).

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) consists of an acyl chain at the sn-1 (or sn-2) position of a glycerol backbone and a phosphate head group.
Currently, the US company is developing an early stage fibrosis portfolio that includes BMS-986020, a lysophosphatidic acid 1 receptor antagonist for the treatment of IPF.
In addition, PA can serve as substrate for production of the signaling lipids diacylglycerol (DAG) and lysophosphatidic acid. Mutations in the Lipin-1 gene, the PA phosphatase that generates DAG from PA, have been associated with metabolic and neurological diseases [35].
LPPs catalyze the dephosphorylation of a range of lipid phosphates, such as lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) [3, 4].

Among these molecules, the role of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) has recently become a topic of particular interest.
The researchers found that mice that ate the peptide-enhanced tomatoes, which accounted for 2.2 percent of their Western-style, high-fat diet, had significantly lower levels of inflammation; higher paraoxonase activity, an antioxidant enzyme associated with good cholesterol; higher levels of good cholesterol; decreased lysophosphatidic acid, a tumor- promoter that accelerates plaque build-up in the arteries in animal models; and less atherosclerotic plaque.
