Lipid particles of the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, were isolated to high purity and their components were analysed. The hydrophobic core of this organelle consists of triacylglycerols and steryl esters, which are almost exclusively located to that compartment. Lipid particles are stabilized by a surface membrane consisting of phospholipids and proteins. Electron microscopy confirmed the purity of the preparations and the proposed structure deduced from biochemical experiments. Major… CONTINUE READING
