Platelet-<wbr></wbr>activating factor (PAF) is a biologically active phospholipid synthesized by a variety of stimulated cells that acts as a mediator of platelet aggregation, inflammation, and allergy. PAF is converted to the biologically inactive lyso-<wbr></wbr>PAF by the enzyme PAF acetylhydrolase (PAF-<wbr></wbr>AH). Recently, plasma PAF-<wbr></wbr>AH has been linked to atherosclerosis and may be a positive risk factor for coronary heart disease in humans. 1-<wbr></wbr>Linoleoyl glycerol (1-<wbr></wbr>LG) is a fatty acid glycerol that has been isolated from <em>S. chinensis</em> roots. It inhibits PAF-<wbr></wbr>AH with an IC<sub>50</sub> of 45 µM. 1-<wbr></wbr>LG has potential application in cholesterol lowering and antiatherogenic activity.
