  • Ethanolamine
  • The alkylacylglycerophospholipids are less abundant than the plasmalogens, e.g., about 59% of ethanolamine glycerophospholipids of human heart are plasmalogens, whereas only 3.6% are alkylacylglycerophospholipids. (wikipathways.org)
  • The third carbon links to an ethanolamine or choline by means of a phosphate ester. (wikipedia.org)
  • The phosphate serves as a link to another alcohol-usually ethanolamine, choline, serine, or a carbohydrate. (wikipedia.org)
  • DHAP
  • DHAP can also serve as a TAG precursor in non-adipose tissues, but does so to a much lesser extent than glycerol. (hmdb.ca)
  • Signals
  • When the body requires fatty acids as an energy source, the hormone glucagon signals the breakdown of the triglycerides by hormone-sensitive lipase to release free fatty acids. (hmdb.ca)
  • substrate
  • However, it is worth noting that in vitro, the various acyltransferases exhibit different substrate specificities with respect to the acyl-CoAs that are incorporated into PA. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • The major building block for the synthesis of triacylglycerides, in non-adipose tissue, is glycerol. (hmdb.ca)
