Short Communications


During the first 40 days of life the rate of incorporation of32P into total phospholipids and into phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine, sphingomyelin, diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidic acid and phosphatidylinositol of mouse kidney was by some 25–35% higher than in older animals. Results suggest a different involvement of cellular membranes during of normal and compensatory renal growth.
