Abstract

Two enzymes involved in the galactolipid metabolism of spinach chloroplast envelope membranes were studied. UDPGal: diacylglycerol galactosyltransferase (UDGT) synthetizes monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) from UDPGal plus diacylglycerol (1, 2):
$$ {\text{UDPGal + diacylglycerol}} \to {\text{UDP + MGDG}} $$
.
