Abstract

SUMMARY: The membrane lipids from an archaebacterial haloalkaliphile were shown to be based almost entirely on diethers containing C isopranyl chains. The ‘universal’ C,C archaebacterial diether core lipid (2,3-di--phytanyl--glycerol) made up only 9% (w/w) of the total isopranoid diether fraction. The rest of the isopranoid diether fraction comprised 85% (w/w) C,C diether (2--sesterterpanyl-3--phytanyl--glycerol) and 6% (w/w) of a novel C,C diether (2,3-di--sesterterpanyl--glycerol).
