Complex Lipid Metabolism Flashcards
3 carbon-acyl groups with 3 fatty acid groups (one per a carbon)
2 FA groups, 3 carbons, 1 phosphate group with a polar head group
What is unique about cardiolipin?
Has 2 phosphate groups with 4 FA groups (total, 2 per a P)
Synthesized in peroxisomes. Have alkenyl alcohol attached via ether linkage
Sphingosine + acyl-CoA+PC
Singaling molecule. Only the anime plus a saturated FA
shingosine, FA in amide linkage, 1 or more carb derived structures
2 sources of glycerol-3-phosphate
Liver (glycerol) and adipose tissue (dihydroxyacetone phosphate)
Where is glycerol kinase primarily expressed?
Liver and intestine
TAGS from liver fate
packaged/secreted as VLDL
TAGS from adipose fate
stored in lipid droplets of adipocytes
TAGs from intestine fate
Packaged as chylomircons for circulation
What tissue does not synthesize phsopholipids?
From what are all glycerophospholipids derived from?
What type of synthesis is DAG used for?
PC and PE
