sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerol (plural sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerols)
- (biochemistry) A glycerophospholipid that, along with galactosyldiacylglycerol, is an important component of membranes of chloroplasts and related organelles and one of the most abundant lipids in photosynthetic tissues.
- 2001, Bertram Fraser-Reid, editor, Glycoscience, page 2085:
- Sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerol lipids have also been identified in phototrophic and a few other bacterial species.
- 2009, Hajime Wada, Norio Murata, editors, Lipids in Photosynthesis, page 2:
- There are four major glyceroplipid components in the thylakoid membranes, namely, monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG), digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG), sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerol (SQDG) and phosphatidylglycerol (PG).
