Abstract

Two galactosyltransferases producing galactolipids have been studied extensively in chloroplast envelope membranes (1). UDPGal: diacylglycerol galactosyltransferase (UDGT) produces monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) (2); and galactolipid: galactolipid galactosyltransferase (GGGT) producess di-, tri- and tetragalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG, TGDG and TeGDG) (3-6). In the isolated envelope membranes, UDGT and GGGT co-operate in the production of MGDG, DGDG, TGDG and TeGDG (4, 5).
