Transbilayer distribution of phospholipids in bacteriophage membranes.

Abstract

We have previously demonstrated that the membranes of several bacteriophages contain more phosphatidylglycerol (PG) and less phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) than the host membrane from where they are derived. Here, we determined the transbilayer distribution of PG and PE in the membranes of bacteriophages PM2, PRD1, Bam35 and phi6 using selective modification… (More)
