Biochim Biophys Acta. 1992 Mar 25;1124(3):249-52. doi: 10.1016/0005-2760(92)90136-j.

Abstract

Two novel glycolipids with a very rare alpha(1-->4) diglucosyl structure have been isolated from the thermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima. The structures of these compounds, on the basis of chemical procedures and spectroscopic studies (FAB-MS and NMR), were shown to be: 1(3),2-dipalmitoyl-3(1)-[glucopyranosyl-(6-decanoyl)-alpha-D-(1-->4)- glucopyranosyl-alpha-D]-glycerol (Glycolipid 1) and 1(3),2-dipalmitoyl-3(1)-[glucopyranosyl-alpha-D-(1-->4)-glucopyranosyl- alpha-D]-glycerol (Glycolipid 2).
