The most abundant phospholipids in the Elite, Fornax and Licord PM in control plants were phosphatidylglycerol (PG), phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and phosphatidylserine (PS), respectively, which when combined, made up 59% of the total phospholipids.
Now, by using a cabbage-derived enzyme to transphosphatidylate phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine from soy lecithin into phosphatidylserine, Lipogen is one the world's two largest phosphatidylserine producers, offering a natural, "clean" and 100% solvent-free manufacturing process for PS and phosphatidic acid (PA).
