Heterogeneity of phospholipid synthesis in rat liver endoplasmic reticulum during proliferation of smooth membranes.

During proliferation of smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER) induced by phenobarbital the specific activity of acyltransferases of the smooth microsomes increases, there is a transient rise in the phospholipid/protein ratio of these membranes, and an increased incorporation of [14C]glycerol into smooth-membrane phospholipid. Microsomes separated into… CONTINUE READING
