Chemical Cardiolipins

Name Cardiolipins
Equivalent Terms Cardiolipin | Diphosphatidylglycerols
Definition Acidic phospholipids composed of two molecules of phosphatidic acid covalently linked to a molecule of glycerol. They occur primarily in mitochondrial inner membranes and in bacterial plasma membranes. They are the main antigenic components of the Wassermann-type antigen that is used in nontreponemal SYPHILIS SERODIAGNOSIS.
