These DAGs can be desaturated by chloroplast desaturases [30, 31]. ER is the main site for the synthesis of phospholipids and triacylglycerol, which derive from lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) as for the prokaryotic pathway (Figure 7). The regulatory mechanism of biomembrane fluidity is one of the principal mechanisms that plants accommodate to changes in temperature conditions and it is affected by the distribution ratio of various lipids on the membrane and the unsaturation of the glycerol lipid … Mitochondrial membrane biogenesis is particularly important and noteworthy in plants as the lipid composition of mitochondrial membranes is dramatically changed during phosphate starvation and other stresses.

In prokaryotes, all lipid synthesis occurs in the cytosol. In the epidermis,lipids made by the ER are exported to form the cuticular barrier protecting the plant against water loss,biotic and abiotic stresses. The second pathway, called the “eukaryotic” pathway, leads to the formation of two types of MGDG molecular species; one of them contains α-linoleate in both positions of glycerol and the other molecular species contains α-linoleate in position sn-2 and palmitate in position sn-1.

Prog Lipid Res. In this part of the review, we briefly describe the main pathways involved in phospholipid synthesis in plants and we highlight the intracellular localization of the enzymes involved. Water is the biological milieu—the substance that makes life possible—and almost all the molecular components of living cells, whether they be found in animals, plants, or microorganisms, are soluble in water. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) in plants plays a key role in the synthesis of a wide rangeof lipids which are essential structural components of all cellular membranes. At this temperature, under nitrogen deficiency, the accumulation of carbohydrates and neutral lipids was stimulated.

MGDG is synthesized in a single step by a 1,2-DAG 3-β-galactosyltransferase (or MGDG synthase) that transfers galactose from UDP-Gal to DAG via a β1 → 3 glycosidic linkage [38]. Overexpression in rat hepatoma cells inhibits the CDP-ethanolamine pathway for phosphatidylethanolamine Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is thus formed. Another important distinction is that in plants cells, triglyceride synthesis occurs mainly in chloroplasts, with subsequent assembly in the SER. In plants, de novo fatty acid biosynthesis mainly takes place in the plastidial compartment [8] from acetyl CoA, which is a direct product of photosynthesis.

All of these fatty acids can have industrial and/or pharmaceutical applications. acyltransferase from developing soybean cotyledons. The plastid membranes are mainly composed of galactolipids, while those of extrachloroplast membranes consist of phospholipids as in the animal cell [4]. The prokaryotic pathway uses acyl-ACPs for PA and PG synthesis in all plants, and galactolipids (MGDG, DGDG, and SQDG) of so-called “C16:3” plants. Lipids include fatty acids, fats, oils, steroids (sterols), waxes, cutin, suberin, glycerophospholipids (phospholipids), glyceroglycolipids (glycosylglycerides), terpenes, and tochopherols.
