Abstract

Since the membrane lipids of comparatively few bacteria have been studied, it will be advisable to give a brief outline of the lipids of intact cells. It is not within the scope of this book to give a full account of this subject, and the reader is referred to the relevant surveys (Asselineau, 1962; O’Leary, 1962; Macfarlane, 1964a,b; Kates, 1964, 1966; Bloch, 1965; Lennarz, 1966; Ikawa, 1967; Bergel’son, 1967; Goldfine, 1968; Kates and Wassef, 1970).
