Ryals et al. (Ryals, P.E., Pak, Y., and Thompson, G. A., Jr., (1991) J. Biol. Chem. 266, 15048-15053) have described and partially characterized phosphatidylinositol glycans (PI glycans) present in Tetrahymena mimbres. We now describe the time course of PI glycan labeling from exogenous [3H]myristate, [14C]glucosamine, and [3H]ethanolamine. Over the first 2-12 h following pulse radioisotope addition a sizeable proportion of the radioactivity associated with the protein pellet remaining after… CONTINUE READING
