Sites of phospholipid biosynthesis during induction of intracytoplasmic membrane formation in Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides

Abstract

A rapid, gratuitous and cell-division uncoupled induction of intracytoplasmic photosynthetic membrane formation was demonstrated in low-aeration suspensions of chemotrophically grown Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides. Despite a nearly 2-fold increase in phospholipid levels, no significant increases were detected in the specific activities of CDP-1,2-diacyl-sn… (More)
