Descriptor fosfolípidos
Entry term(s) fosfolípido
fosfátidos
Scope note: Lípidos que contienen uno o más grupos fosfato, sobre todo los que derivan del glicerol (fosfoglicéridos, ver GLICEROFOSFOLÍPIDOS) o de la esfingosina (ESFINGOLÍPIDOS). Son lípidos polares de gran importancia en relación con la estructura y función de las membranas celulares y son los más abundantes en los lípidos de las membranas, aunque no se almacenan en grandes cantidades en el sistema.

Tree number(s): D10.570.755
RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D010743
Scope note: Lipids containing one or more phosphate groups, particularly those derived from either glycerol (phosphoglycerides see GLYCEROPHOSPHOLIPIDS) or sphingosine (SPHINGOLIPIDS). They are polar lipids that are of great importance for the structure and function of cell membranes and are the most abundant of membrane lipids, although not stored in large amounts in the system.
