The chemical composition of plasma membrane fractions isolated from orchard grass seedlings (Dactylis glomerata L.) was analyzed and compared with endomembranes. The plasma membrane is characterized by an enrichment of sterols and a lower degree of unsaturation of phospholipids. Steryl glycosides were found to be one of the lipid components of the plasma membrane, but steryl esters and galactolipids were barely detectable. Diphosphatidyl glycerol was characteristically detected in the… CONTINUE READING
