Plasmalogens (Pls) are phospholipids containing a vinyl-ether bond in the sn-1 position of the glycerol backbone. The physiological role of Pls is still enigmatic, especially within the eye where their deficiency leads to developmental abnormalities. In order to learn more about the functions of Pls in the posterior eye, we evaluated retinal Pl content as well as the expression of the first enzyme involved in Pls biosynthesis, dihydroxyacetone phosphate acyltransferase (DHAP-AT) in the retina… CONTINUE READING
