Abstract (English)

A characteristic difference between the three phylogenetic domains of life is the chemical composition of the lipids forming their cell membranes. In Bacteria and Eukarya phospholipids are based on a sn-glycerol-3-phosphate (G3P) which is esterified with two fatty acids, while in phospholipids from Archaea the enantiomer sn-glycerol-1-phosphate (G1P) forms two ether-bonds with isoprenoid chains. ...
