... whether thermal acclimation altered liver mitochondrial respiratory capacity or the composition and amount of IMM. We measured changes in phospholipid headgroups and headgroup-specific fatty acid (FA) remodeling, and used respirometry to assess mitochondrial respiratory capacity. Acclimation to 5°C and 33...

... acids. We also found that both bivalves underwent a major remodelling of membrane phospholipids. The unsaturation index decreased in the gills and digestive glands of both species during the early stages of warming, principally due to decreases in 22:6n-3 and 20:5n-3. In digestive glands...

...), the skin supported only a very small flux of NH 3 (0.0095 μmol cm -2 min -1 ). Cholesterol content (4.5 μmol g -1 ) in the skin was high, which suggests low membrane fluidity. Phosphatidylcholine, which has a stabilizing effect on membranes, constituted almost 50% of the skin phospholipids...

... embryo to serve these functions. Studies with birds, reptiles and insects have described lipid metabolism in adults and in eggs, but no studies have addressed how lipids are distributed in developing organs in the embryo. Here we show that maternal fatty acid and phospholipids segregate differently...

.... Microsomes were prepared from the kidney and brain of the rat ( Rattus norvegicus ) and the cane toad ( Bufo marinus ), and Na + /K + -ATPase molecular activity was determined. The membrane lipids surrounding this enzyme were isolated and phospholipids prepared. ‘Surface pressure/area’ isotherms were...
