Analysis of plasmalogen synthesis in cultured cells

Masanori Honsho, Yukio Fujiki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Plasmalogen synthesis can be analyzed by metabolic labeling, followed by the separation of ethanolamine plasmalogens from glycerophospholipids on one-dimensional thin-layer chromatography. The vinyl-ether bond of plasmalogens is acid-labile, which allows separating plasmalogens as 2-acyl-glycerophospholipids from diacyl-glycerophospholipids.
