Intracellular localization of triterpenic membrane stabilizers of the hopane series is described for the first time for a cyanobacterium. In Synechocystis PCC 6714, a bacteriohopanetetrol derivative (main compound) and diplopterol were detected in cell wall (CW) and thylakoid membrane (TM). Both hopanoids were enriched 4.5-fold and 9.0-fold in CW and outer membrane (OM) fractions, respectively, compared to TMs.
