  • Sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol (SQDG) and phosphatidylglycerol (PG) are lipids with negative charges, distributed among membranes of chloroplasts of plants and their postulated progenitors, cyanobacteria, and also widely among membranes of anoxygenic photosynthetic bacteria. Thus, these acidic lipids are of great interest in terms of their roles in the function and evolution of the photosynthetic membranes. The physiological significance of these lipids in photosynthesis has been examined… CONTINUE READING
