Phospholipid transfer proteins in rat lung. Identification of a protein specific for phosphatidylglycerol.


From the soluble fraction of a rat lung homogenate, two proteins were partially purified which catalyzed the transfer of phosphatidylglycerol between liposomes and rat lung mitochondria. One protein was specific for phosphatidylglycerol, the other also catalyzed the transfer of phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine. The soluble fraction from rat… (More)
