Secretory non-pancreatic phospholipase A2 (sPLA2), also called type II-PLA2, is produced in large amounts under inflammatory conditions, thus accumulating in inflammatory fluids. Since the enzyme is virtually inactive on phospholipids from intact cells, we have searched for conditions allowing the action of sPLA2 on membrane phospholipids. Based on an in vitro model, our studies suggest that only those membranes where the transverse distribution of phospholipids has been disturbed offer a convenient surface able to interact with the enzyme, which then achieves significant degradation of all glycerophospholipids. This results in the accumulation of various lysophospholipids such as lysophosphatidylcholine, lysophosphatidylethanolamine and lysophosphatidylserine. However, lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) can also be generated under these conditions involving accumulation of phosphatidic acid in the cytoplasmic leaflet of the membrane, followed by its transfer to the outer monolayer. Since LPA is now considered as a novel phospholipid mediator, this pathway deserves further studies concerning mainly platelets, the main source of LPA identified so far.
