This structure was the firstdemonstration of a prokaryotic version of the phosphatidylinositolglycans whichare well known in anchoring cell-surface proteins ().
R1 is frequently palmitic acid, R2 being the unsaturated chain (most often ).
A review summarizes recent research defining the mechanism for SQDG biosynthesisand its biological function in higher plants, particularly underphosphate-starved conditions ().
An extract of the marine chloromonad ()was shown to contain a complex mixture of sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerols ().
Its function remains unknown.
It is well known that sugars and carbonyl compounds interact with amino acids orproteins in a sequence of reactions known as the Maillard reaction.
Some complex structures, the glycosyl phosphatidylinositol anchors,are found in all living creatures.
The simplest form of glycophospholipids are based on the simplest phospholipid,phosphatidic acid, linked to a glycosy group.
