Glycosyl Glycerides

Monogalactosyldiglyceride (MGDG) and digalactosyldiglyceride (DGDG) are two important biomolecules that are especially prevalent in chloroplast membranes and photosynthetic tissues, including those of algae and some bacteria. MGDG is synthesized by MGDG synthase localized in chloroplast envelope membranes. DGDG is formed by the de-phosphorylation of phosphatidic acid or phosphatidylcholine and the subsequent reaction with two 5-diphosphate(UDP)-galactoses.
