Abstract
<jats:p>Ethanolamine phospholipid head groups in Paramecium were synthesized directly from ethanolamine. As in other cell types, radioactivity from ethanolamine failed to incorporate significantly into head groups of ethanolamine phosphonolipids, indicating that the phosphonolipids are not derived from their phospholipid analogues. Unlike other systems previously examined, radioactivity from serine is incorporated into both ethanolamine phospholipid and phosphonolipid head groups of glycerolipids and sphingolipids in this ciliate. These observations suggest that synthesis of ethanolamine phosphonolipids involves synthesis de novo of free phosphonoserine, which i...
