Abstract

Phosphatidylserine plays an important role in cell membranes. We have reported the occurrence of phosphatidyl-<small>D</small>-serine (<small>D</small>-PS) in the rat cerebrum. Here, we describe the tissue distribution of <small>D</small>-PS in the rat. The <small>D</small>/<small>D</small>+<small>L</small> ratio of <small>D</small>-PS in the cerebrum was 0.9%, while no detectable amount of <small>D</small>-PS was detected in the cerebellum. <small>D</small>-PS was also found in the heart, spleen, lung, testis, liver, and kidney in a range of 0.05–0.7% (the <small>D</small>/<small>D</small>+<small>L</small> ratio). Thus, <small>D</small>-PS, even in small amounts, is localized to the cerebrum in the brain and is distributed to various tissues other than the brain in the rat.
