AIBSTRACT The ''~0~ and [l-'4~]-acetate-labelling of fatty acids (FA) of phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) of Vicia faba leaves indicated that 14~-labe~ was not evenly distributed among the FA of these lipids. Instead, labelled saturated and monounsaturated FA were combined with udabelled. Thus, the diacylglycerol pool is partitioned between the major phospholipid classes, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine, by the regulated synthesis of CDP-choline and CDP-ethanolamine, whereas a diacylglycerol kinase activity may control the partitioning of diacylglycerol for PtdIns synthesis.

The anionic phosphate groups and polar groups such as choline form the hydrophilic heads and the fatty acid chains in diacylglycerol form the hydrophobic tails in the membrane bilayer. A phospholipid with choline as simple organic molecule is phosphatidylcholine and it is also known as lecithin.

  Phosphatidylcholine is a natural molecule found in the human body as well as in food. A structural lipid, phosphatidylcholine plays a number of important roles in the human body. While research is ongoing, phosphatidylcholine has shown particular promise in the areas of brain health, memory, and mental health disorders. Role in Photorespiration. Photorespiration is a process involving oxygen fixation and release of carbon dioxide, in a light-dependent manner. The chemical reactions involved take place in the stroma of chloroplast, mitochondria, and peroxisomes. This process utilizes ATP and the reducing equivalents like NADPH and NADH.

In V. faba we have suggested that phosphatidylglycerol may be a source of 16/18C diacylglycerol in monoga- lactosyldiacylglycerol synthesis because of a sig- nificant turnover in radioactivity of in phos- phatidylglycerol [1,12].

Kinetic experiments with [14C]glucose-infiltrated Vicia faba leaf tissue showed that San inhibited desaturation of MGDG linoleic acid (C) to form linolenic acid (C) and increased the degree of unsaturation of the diacylglycerol molecular species used in MGDG biosynthesis.

Phosphatidylcholine is the major phospholipid of the surface monolayer of all LPs including VLDLs, and choline is an essential precursor of synthesis of this lipid via the CDP-choline pathway (Chapter 6).

Chloroplast division is performed by the constriction of envelope membranes at the division site. Although constriction of a ring-like protein complex has been shown to be involved in chloroplast division, it remains unknown how membrane lipids participate in the process.

Phosphatidylcholine - Structure and Occurrence. Phosphatidylcholine or 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerophosphocholine (once given the trivial name 'lecithin') is a neutral or zwitterionic phospholipid over a pH range from strongly acid to strongly is usually the most abundant phospholipid in animals and plants, often amounting to almost 50% of the total complex lipids, and as such it is.Purified, intact chloroplasts from Allium porrum seedlings are able to synthesize phosphatidylcholine by acylating lysophosphatidylcholine (but not glycerophosphocholine) with acyl‐CoAs.

The acyltransferase activity is located in the envelope of chloroplasts. It is specific for lysophosphatidylcholine and the neosynthesized lipids have a C 18 fatty acid esterified to the sn ‐2 .
