Because lipids are major components of cellular membranes, their degradation under stress conditions compromises compartmentalization. However, in addition to having structural roles, membrane lipids are also implicated in signalling processes involving the activity of lipolytic enzymes. Phospholipases D and C, acting on the polar heads of phospholipids, have been relatively well characterized in plants. In contrast, knowledge of lipid deacylating enzymes remains limited. Lipid acyl hydrolases… CONTINUE READING
