Solubilization of Lipid-Glycosyltransferases from Mitochondrial Outer Membranes
In the mitochondria, the enzymes which catalyze the incorporation of sugars onto lipidic acceptors are intimately associated with membranes. We have previously shown that mitochondrial outer membranes contain autonomous enzymatic systems which transfer mannose (Gateau et al., 1973) and glucose (Gateau et al., 1980) onto lipidic endogenous acceptors. Although these enzymes have been studied in mitochondrial membranes, no study has yet investigated the interactions of these enzymes with phospholipids.
