For the first time, we have shown that a stereospecific interaction occurs between porcine pancreatic phospholipase A2and a monomolecular film of amidophospholipid used as inhibitor. Direct binding experiments, using radiolabelled phospholipase A2, showed that 13 times more enzyme was bound to phospholipid films of the l series by comparison with films of the d series. These results were confirmed by indirect binding studies using re-spreading experiments. Kinetic studies of the porcine pancreatic PLA2, using enantiomeric acyl-amino phospholipid analogues, have shown that: (1) inhibitors of the l series are more potent than inhibitors of the d series, (2) inhibitors having a negative charge are more potent than zwitterionic inhibitors, (3) inhibitory power values are greater when evaluated in micellar system than in a the monolayer system, (4) the inhibitory power increases continuously with surface pressure. © 1992.
