This view shows enzymes only for those organisms listed below, in the list of taxa known to possess the pathway. If an enzyme name is shown in bold, there is experimental evidence for this enzymatic activity.
|Superclasses:||Biosynthesis → Fatty Acid and Lipid Biosynthesis → Phospholipid Biosynthesis → Cardiolipin Biosynthesis|
Some taxa known to possess this pathway include : Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Expected Taxonomic Range: Bacteria
a cardiolipin is an anionic membrane phospholipid. Along with phosphatidylglycerol, the anionic lipids are important for the biogenesis and function of membranes. Cardiolipin is present in the plasma membrane of bacteria and in the mitochondrial membrane in eukaryotes.
A main difference exists between bacterial and eukaryotic cardiolipin biosynthesis; In bacteria cardiolipin is formed by the condensation of two molecules of an L-1-phosphatidyl-glycerol, while in eukaryotes it is formed from one molecule of a CDP-diacylglycerol and one molecule of an L-1-phosphatidyl-glycerol.
