Abstract

EVIDENCE has recently been obtained for the existence of a new class of glycerides containing a vinyl ether linkage. Such glycerides were extracted from the digestive glands of Asterias forbesi, the common starfish1,2, and from the milk fat, beef tallow and ox heart3. According to Kiyasu and Kennedy, such neutral plasmalogens may be named plasmalogenic diglycerides and plasmalogenic triglycerides respectively4.
