- Arachidonic acid metabolism
- in resting cells arachidonic acid is present in the phospholipids (especially phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylcholine) of membranes of the body’s cells, and is particularly abundant in the brain. typically a receptor-dependent event, requiring a transducing g protein, initiates phospholipid hydrolysis and releases the fatty acid into the intracellular medium.
