Effect of independent variations in fatty acid structure and chain length on lipid polar headgroup composition in Acholeplasma laidlawii B membranes: regulation of lamellar/nonlamellar phase propensity.

Abstract

We have studied the biosynthetic regulation of the membrane lipid polar headgroup distribution in Acholeplasma laidlawii B cells made fatty acid auxotrophic by growth in the presence of the biotin-binding agent avidin to test whether this organism has the ability to coherently regulate the lamellar/nonlamellar phase propensity of its membrane lipids. The… (More)
