Abstract

Incorporation of sodium [1-C]acetate into the heterocyst-specific glycolipids and glycerolipids of the cyanobacterium during induced heterocyst differentiation indicated that (1) the activity of key enzymes involved specifically in the biosynthesis of the very long chain polyhydroxyalkanes and hydroxyfatty acid moieties of the heterocyst glycolipid fraction is stimulated during heterocyst differentiation, and (2) in mature heterocysts, formation of the characteristic very long chain heterocyst glycolipids essentially ceases.
