Abstract We previously showed that the in vitro intraerythrocytic development of the malarial agent Plasmodium falciparum is strongly inhibited by secreted phospholipases A(2) (sPLA(2)s) from animal venoms. Inhibition is dependent on enzymatic activity and requires the presence of serum lipoproteins in the parasite culture medium. To evaluate the potential involvement of host lipoproteins and sPLA(2)s in malaria, we investigated the interactions between bee venom phospholipase A(2) (bvPLA(2)), human triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, and infected erythrocytes. Even at high enzyme concentration (100x IC(50)), bvPLA(2) binding to Plasmodium-infected or normal erythrocytes was not detected. On the contrary, tight association with lipoproteins was observed through the formation of buoyant bvPLA(2)/lipoprotein complexes. Direct involvement of the hydrolysis lipid products in toxicity was demonstrated. Arachidonic acid (C20:4), linoleic acid (C18:2), and, to a lesser extent, docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6) appeared as the main actors in toxicity. Minimal oxidation of lipoproteins enhanced toxicity of the lipolyzed particles and induced their interaction with infected or normal erythrocytes. Fresh or oxidized lipolyzed lipoproteins induced the parasite degeneration without host cell membrane disruption, ruling out a possible membranolytic action of fatty acids or peroxidation products in the death process. In conclusion, our data enlighten on the capability of secreted PLA(2)s to exert cytotoxicity via the extracellular generation of toxic lipids, and raise the question of whether such mechanisms could be at play in pathophysiological situations such as malaria.
