SUMMARY I. Megasphaera elsdenii appears to be a very suitable organism for studies on the metabolism of plasmalogens in anaerobic bacteria due to its extremely high content of both serine and ethanolamine plasmalogen. 2. Growth of this organism in the presence of either 32Pi or [2-3H]glycerol resulted in similar labelling patterns of the various lipid constituents. The 3H label, incorporated into the plasmalogens, was found to be localized exclusively in the glycerol moiety of these compounds… CONTINUE READING
