The report on lipids market further segments glycerol phospholipids into phosphoserines, phosphocholines, phosphatidic acid, MPEGlyated phospholipids, phospholipids with heterogeneous chain, phosphoglycerols with heterogeneous chain, and phosphoethanolamines.
Phospholipid metabolism and nuclear function: roles of the lipin family of phosphatidic acid phosphatases.
Among these were glycerophospholipids, including lysophosphatidic acids (LPA), lysophosphatidycholines (LPC), lysophosphatidylethanolamines (LPE), lysophosphatidylglycerols (LPG), phosphatidic acids (PA), phosphatidylcholines (PC), phosphatidylethanolamines (PE), phosphatidylglycerols (PG), and phosphatidylserines (PS), as well as glycerolipids such as diglyceride (DG), monoacylglycerols (MG), and fatty acids (FA).
In some cases, the formation of phosphatidic acid was higher than the glyceryl ether phospholipid.
The study observed women during an initial baseline menstrual cycle followed by three menstrual cycles in which subjects received daily treatment of the Lipogen PMS complex of 400 mg phosphatidylserine (PS) and 400 mg phosphatidic acid (PA).

Phosphatidylcholine (PtdCho) and phosphatidylethanolamine (similarly to phosphatidylinositol, Ptdlns) can generate second messengers such as diacylglycerol (DAG) and phosphatidic acid, which in turn is a precursor of DAG, lysophosphatidic acid, and arachidonic acid, through three major catabolic pathways, respectively, mediated by specific phospholipases of type C (PLC) and D (PLD), acting at the two distinct phosphodiester bonds of the phospholipid headgroup and by phospholipase A2 (PLA2) in the deacylation reaction cascade [33].
