    • Platelet-activating factor (PAF; 1-O-Alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphorylcholine) is a ubiquitous phospholipid that is implicated in the mediation of a wide variety of reproductive processes. To better understand the role of PAF in bovine reproduction, it was designed experiments to: (a) determine whether bull spermatozoa express receptors for PAF and (b) study the effect of exogenous PAF on in vitro sperm physiology (i.e., capacitation, acrosome reaction, motility, and fertilizing ability)...

    • Platelet activating factor (PAF-acether) is a potent pro-inflammatory mediator. The possible involvement of this molecule in the pathogenesis of chronic erosive arthritis has been investigated using an animal model, antigen-induced arthritis in the rabbit, which closely resembles rheumatoid arthritis. The arthritic joint fluids from rabbits with antigen-induced arthritis contained low levels of PAF-acether in the acute stages of the disease...

    • Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a potent mediator known to cause bronchoconstriction and increase airways responsiveness.In vitro studies have shown that the effects of PAF on cell function can be very temperature-dependent. The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect of elevated body temperature on numbers of circulating cells and pulmonary function in anesthetized rabbits in response to PAF. PAF was given intravenously, at a dose of 1.2 μg/kg/hour, whereas the control experiments were performed after the animals received a saline infusion...

    • Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a pro-inflammatory lipid mediator that increases vascular permeability by simultaneous activation of two pathways, one dependent on the cyclooxygenase metabolite prostaglandin E2 and the other on the sphingomyelinase metabolite ceramide...
