Effects of Temperature, Ionic Environment, and Light Flashes on the Glycerolipid Neosynthesis in the Toad Retina
Several extracellular stimuli are known to affect the turnover of membrane lipids, particularly that of phosphatidylinositol (Michell, 1975). However, similar effects on the neosynthesis of phospholipids and neutral glycerides are not clearly known. Nevertheless it appears that this pathway must be under metabolic control to ensure the provision of individual lipids for biogenesis, partial renewal, or repair of biomembranes.
