They identified two closely related genes (α and β): both enzymes are mostly expressed in the 10,000×g membrane fraction and exhibit optimal activity at pH 7. The activities of these enzymes were stimulated by Ca2+ and blocked by p-hydroxymercuribenzoate, HgCl2, and RHC-80267, a DG lipase inhibitor. Tetrahydrolipstatin, another DG lipase inhibitor, also suppressed the activities of both enzymes and decreased the ionomycin-induced generation of 2-AG. These results strongly suggest that the enzymes mentioned above actually contribute to the biosynthesis and release of 2-AG.

2005). , 2005). These results clearly indicated that NAPEphospholipase D actually utilizes endogenous NAPE as a substrate to release N-acylethanolamines in living cells. In any case, the discovery of NAPE-specific phospholipase D strongly suggests that this enzyme is a physiologically and/or pathophysiologically important one and that saturated or monoenoic species of N-acylethanolamines, in addition to anandamide, may play some yet unknown essential roles in mammalian tissues and cells. 20 T.

Petersen and Hansen (1999) demonstrated that the NAPEspecific phospholipase D lacks the ability to transphosphatidylate. Moesgaard and colleagues (2000) demonstrated that the NAPE-specific phospholipase D activity substantially increased during the early development of the rat brain. A breakthrough with regard to this enzyme was recently achieved by Ueda and coworkers. Okamoto and colleagues (2004) purified NAPE-specific phospholipase D from rat heart and cloned the gene encoding the protein. This enzyme is composed of 393–396 amino acids and has no homology with the known phospholipase D enzymes but is classified as a member of the zinc metallohydrolase family with the β-lactamase fold.
