  • Plant cells have two distinct types of vacuoles: the prototypical lytic vacuole (LV), which has high hydrolytic activity and shares functions with the yeast vacuole and mammalian lysosome, and the protein storage vacuole (PSV), a plant-specific organelle that is specialized in accumulating reserve proteins and is prevalent in seeds [ 6 ].

  • Components
  • Fatty acids are components of phospholipids and sphingolipids which are part of biological membranes, fats (triglycerides) which are used as energy storage devices inside cells (adipose tissue), function as fat transport vehicle in the blood (high and low density lipoproteins), and through covalent attachment are used for protein modification.

  • organelle
  • The spherical catalytic domain, which protrudes into the matrix of the organelle, has three catalytic sites in β-subunits at interfaces with α-subunits ( 5 ). (pnas.org)

  • Fatty acyl chains (R groups in figure below) of most membrane phospholipids are C16 and C18 members, with the acyl chain R2 usually unsaturated. (whatislife.com)

  • The proton-motive force is coupled mechanically to ATP synthesis by the rotation at about 100 times per second of the central stalk and an attached ring of c-subunits in the membrane domain. (pnas.org)
