Rate-limiting Description

"Proposed iPLA2beta functions include participation in phosphatidylcholine (PC) homeostasis by degrading excess PC generated in CHO cells that overexpress CTP:phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase (CT), which catalyzes the rate-limiting step in PC biosynthesis; participation in biosynthesis of arachidonate-containing PC species in P388D1 cells by generating lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) acceptors for arachidonate incorporation; and participation in signaling events in insulin secretion from islet beta-cells."
