Glycerolipids and glycerophospholipids (WP4345)

This pathway is inspired by the Lipidmaps>Glycerolipids and Glycerophospholipids Pathways expended pathway display []. Glycerolipids are composed of mono-, di-, and tri-substituted glycerols, which all function as energy storage. Glycerophospholipids are also based on glycerol phospholipids, and serve as the main component of biological membranes.
