The sulfolipid sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol is an abundant sulfur-containing nonphosphorous glycerolipid that is specifically associated with photosynthetic membranes of higher plants, mosses, ferns, algae, and most photosynthetic bacteria. The characteristic structural feature of sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol is the unique head group constituent sulfoquinovose, a derivative of glucose in which the 6-hydroxyl is replaced by a sulfonate group. While there is growing evidence for the final… CONTINUE READING
