Pulse-chase experiments in Bacillus megaterium ATCC 14581 with [U-14C]palmitate, L-[U-14C]serine, and [U-14C]glycerol showed that a large pool of phosphatidylglycerol (PG) which exhibited rapid turnover in the phosphate moiety (PGt) underwent very rapid interconversion with the large diglyceride (DG) pool. Kinetics of DG labeling indicated that the fatty… CONTINUE READING
