phosphatidic acid:

see phospholipidphospholipid
, lipid that in its simplest form is composed of glycerol bonded to two fatty acids and a phosphate group. The resulting compound called phosphatidic acid contains a region (the fatty acid component) that is fat-soluble along with a region (the charged phosphate

TG synthesis impairment was also associated with downregulation of two important enzymes of this pathway: 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 2 (AGPAT2) and the phosphatidate phosphatase LPIN1 (lipin1) in BSCL2 knockdown during adipogenesis [11, 45].

Most of these enzymes encountered little change in their expression levels, except for phosphatidate phosphatase (PP) and diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT).
Regarding PA, it is an acid form of phosphatidate, a part of common phospholipids which are major components of cell membranes.
Lipin proteins act as [Mg.sup.2+]-dependent phosphatidate phosphatase (PAP) and catalyze the penultimate step of converting phosphatidic acid (PA) to diacylglycerol (DAG) in the glycerol phosphate pathway (Han et al., 2006; Donkor et al., 2007).

L-NAME was previously reported to elevate circulating lipids [15-17] due to increased triglyceride synthesis through induction of hepatic phosphatidate phosphohydrolase (an enzyme essential in triglyceride synthesis) and decreased oxidation due to suppression of carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPT-1), and elevation of cholesterol secondary to lower bile acid synthesis due to suppression of hepatic cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7A1), the latter two genes being known targets for PPAR[alpha] [18,19].
