Figure S1.PMA and A23187 induce cPLA2 activation and subsequent release of arachidonic acid within 30 minutes. Primary cortical neurons were labelled with [3 H]-AA for 24 hours then treated with 1 μM PMA and 5 μM A23187 for 30 minutes. Cells were lysed and levels of [3 H]-AA measured in supernatant and lysates to calculate a% [3 H]-AA release. Data expressed as mean ± S.D. of three experiments. **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001.
