Acyl-CoAs are substrates for acyl lipid synthesis in the endoplasmic reticulum. In addition, they may also be substrates for lipid acylation in other membranes. In order to assess whether lipid acylation may have a role in plastid lipid metabolism, we have studied the incorporation of radiolabelled fatty acids from acyl-CoAs into lipids in isolated, intact pea chloroplasts. The labelled lipids were phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylglycerol (PG), phosphatidylinositol and free fatty acids… CONTINUE READING
