Membrane lipid regulation in Acholeplasma laidlawii grown with saturated fatty acids. Biosynthesis of a triacylglucolipid forming reversed micelles.

Abstract

The membrane lipid composition in several strains of Acholeplasma laidlawii is regulated upon a change in the growth conditions. Monoglucosyldiacylglycerol (MGlcDAG) and diglucosyldiacylglycerol (DGlcDAG) are the most abundant lipids in the A. laidlawii membrane. A third glucolipid, 3-O-acyl-monoglucosyldiacylglycerol (MAMGlcDAG) is synthesized by strain A… (More)
