Positional Analysis of Fatty Acids in Phospholipids by PLA2 Treatment
Authors:  Yu Liu and Xuemin Wang, date: 06/20/2016, view: 5768, Q&A: 0
Plant phospholipids can be produced in the endoplasmic reticulum or plastids. Lipids from different sources can be distinguished by the fatty acid profile, in terms of the preferred fatty acid species esterified to the sn-1 or sn-2 ...
Extraction and Profiling of Plant Polar Glycerol Lipids
Authors:  Yu Liu and Xuemin Wang, date: 06/20/2016, view: 9291, Q&A: 0
This protocol describes a method to extract total polar glycerol lipids from plant materials, followed by mass spectrometry profiling. Different glycerol lipid classes can be distinguished by their head-groups, which can be profiled automatically ...

Non-radioactive Assay to Determine Product Profile of Short-chain Isoprenyl Diphosphate Synthases
Authors:  Avanish Rai and Dinesh A. Nagegowda, date: 01/05/2021, view: 871, Q&A: 0
Isoprenoids represent the largest class of metabolites with amazing diversities in structure and function. They are involved in protecting plants against pathogens or herbivores or involved in attracting pollinators. Isoprenoids are derived from ...
