Abstract

Summary

Intraerythrocytic readily incorporated labeled glucose carbon into lipids . Essentially all of the incorporation represented phospholipid synthesis, mainly cephalins. The glucose carbon entering phospholipids did so primarily by way of α-glycerol phosphate since less than 5% of the total incorporation represented fatty-acid synthesis. The results suggest that the parasite exhibits at least a partial dependence upon its environment for a source of fatty acid.
