  1. Fatty acids composition of TC membrane was determined as indicate in Methods section. Values represent the mean in percentage of at least three determinations from TC suspensions of 108 cells/ml (SEM was less than 6% in all cases). The degree of membrane FA unsaturation expressed as DBI/S: sum of % each fatty acid × number of double bonds/% of saturated fatty acids.
