Glycosyl-inositolphospholipid (glycosyl-PtdIns) anchors of proteins in mammalian cells which have been analyzed so far are exclusively of the alkylacyl type. However, little is known about the putative precursor of glycosyl-PtdIns, the alkylacyl derivative of glycerophosphoinositol (GroPIns), in these cells since it is generally believed that cellular GroPIns consists of diacyl-type molecular species only. In this report, we describe the isolation and identification of alkylacyl GroPIns… CONTINUE READING
