(英) Peripheral tissue levels and molecular species compositions of N-acyl-phosphatidylethanolamine and its metabolites in mice lacking N-acyl-phosphatidylethanolamine-specific phospholipase D.
(英) N-acylethanolamines (NAEs), a class of lipid mediators, are produced from N-acyl-phosphatidylethanolamine (NAPE) by several pathways, including the direct release by NAPE-specific phospholipase D (NAPE-PLD) or the multistep pathway via sn-glycero-3-phospho-N-acylethanolamine (Gp-NAE). Using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry, we compared peripheral tissue levels of NAPE, Gp-NAE and NAE in NAPE-PLD-deficient (NAPE-PLD-/-) and wild type (WT) mice. NAPE-PLD was suggested to play a major role in the NAPE degradation in heart, kidney, and liver, but not in jejunum, because the NAPE levels except jejunum were significantly higher in NAPE-PLD-/- mice than in WT mice. The deletion of NAPE-PLD failed to alter the NAE levels of these tissues, suggesting its limited role in the NAE production. The enzyme assays with tissue homogenates confirmed the presence of NAPE-PLD-independent pathways in these peripheral tissues. Gp-NAE species having an acyl moiety with 22 carbons and 6 double bonds was enriched in these peripheral tissues. As for sn-2 acyl species of NAPE, 18:2-acyl-containing NAPE species were predominant over 18:1-containing species in heart, liver, and jejunum. Our results show that both molecular species composition of NAPE, NAE and Gp-NAE and their dependencies on Napepld are different among the peripheral tissues, suggesting that each tissue has distinct metabolic pathways and these NAE-containing lipids play tissue-specific roles.
