The glycerophospholipids phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol (PG), and cardiolipin (CL) are major structural components of bacterial membranes. In some bacteria, phosphatidylcholine or phosphatidylinositol and its derivatives form part of the membrane. PG or CL can be modified with the amino acid residues lysine, alanine, or arginine. Diacylglycerol is the lipid anchor from which syntheses of phosphorus-free glycerolipids, such as glycolipids, sulfolipids, or homoserine-derived… CONTINUE READING
