Yeast cell cytosol stimulated the exchange of phospholipids between yeast mitochondria and microsomes in vitro, and also between organelles isolated from rat liver. The major phospholipids exchanged in both cases were phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylcholine, together with smaller amounts of phosphatidylethanolamine. Evidence was also obtained that interconversion of phospholipids occurred during the incubation, probably via base exchange mechanisms.
