The importance of the steric configuration of lysophosphatidylcholine in the lymphatic transport of fat was investigated in bile fistula rats. It was found that the feeding of 1-palmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine increased the lymphatic output of phosphatidyl choline and triacylglycerol, while the feeding of 3-palmitoyl-sn-glycero-1-phosphocholine had no effect. In intestinal microsomes of the bile fistula rats, it was found that the lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase was stereospecific… Expand

The importance of the lysophosphatidylcholine and choline moiety of bile phosphatidylcholine in lymphatic transport of fat.
TLDR
It seemed likely from the smaller effect of supplemented choline and from the fatty acid composition of lymph phosphatidylcholine that the essential requirement was a supply of absorbed lysophosphatidycholine for rapid reacylation to phosphatidscholine, but it was concluded that a luminal supply of 1-palmitoyl lysphosph atidyl choline was not essential.

Effect of phosphatidylcholine on triacylglycerol synthesis in rat intestinal mucosa.
TLDR
It is concluded that the mono- and diacylglycerol acyltransferases require phosphatidylcholine for optimal activity. Expand
Steric requirements for the stimulation of glycosyltransferase activity by lysophosphatidylcholine
TLDR
The stimulatory effect of lysophosphatidylcholine is not stereospecific, but that it may be related to a specific detergent property dependent upon the peculiar balance of hydrophilic and hydrophobic components in the molecule. Expand
Stimulation of CDP-choline biosynthesis by enantiomeric lysophosphatidylcholines in rat intestinal mucosa.
TLDR
It is suggested that the stimulatory effect of lysophosphatidylcholine may be related to a specific detergent property dependent upon the peculiar balance of hydrophilic and hydrophobic components in the molecule. Expand
Role of luminal lecithin in intestinal fat absorption
TLDR
It is concluded that biliary and dietary lecithin or choline play an important role in triglyceride transport out of intestinal mucosa, by providing surfactant leCithin for the chylomicron envelope and by supporting mucosal protein biosynthesis. Expand
Effect of puromycin on protein and glycerolipid biosynthesis in isolated mucosal cells.
TLDR
It is suggested that the effect of puromycin on chylomicron formation could be due to an inhibition of the biosynthesis of any one or all three of the membrane components: proteins, glycoproteins, and phosphatidylcholines. Expand
1-Alkyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphate: acyl-CoA acyltransferase in rat brain microsomes.
TLDR
Comparison of the acyl-CoA specificity of 1-alkyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphate acyl transferase and ether/glycerolipid acyl composition suggests that this acyltransferase could partially determine the composition of acyl groups in ether lipids. Expand

SUMMARY z-Acylglycerol-3-phosphate can be acylated by acyl-CoA in the presence of microsomal preparations from rat liver. With optimal amounts of substrate, the acyltransferase reaction to theExpand
Protein and glycerolipid biosynthesis in isolaged intestinal epithelial cells of normal and bile-fistula rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that this stimulation of incorporation of label is due to a net synthesis of phosphatidylcholine required for membrane and lipoprotein repairs in the fistula cells, which may play an essential role in the formation and clearance of chylomicrons from the intestinal mucosa. Expand
