I have attempted to illustrate the genetic and biochemical complexity of membrane-lipid synthesis by focusing, primarily, on E. coli. The use of molecular genetics to probe membrane lipids is relatively new. Many important questions of phospholipid biochemistry remain unanswered. In the coming years our growing knowledge of the molecular genetics of phospholipids must be applied to the solution of the following problems: How does a cell regulate its total phospholipid content in relationship to… CONTINUE READING
