Isomeric sn-1-octadecenyl and sn-2-octadecenyl analogues of lysophosphatidylcholine as substrates for acylation and desaturation by plant microsomal membranes.

Abstract

To provide supporting and independent evidence for lipid-linked desaturation of acyl groups in plant microsomal membranes, ether-analogous substrates were synthesized and used for in-vitro desaturation studies. The substrates included 1-O-(9-cis-octadecenyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine and 2-O-(9-cis-octadecenyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine as well as… (More)
