1. 1. Chronic administration of isoproterenol caused similar alterations of membrane lipid profile in at least two rat parotid subcellular fractions, secretory granular and microsomal. 2. 2. Typical changes in phospholipid classes and fatty-acyl chain groups were an increase of phosphatidylcholine and a decrease of sphingomyelin, and an increase of octadecadienoyl chain and a decreaes of eicosatetraenoyl chain, respectively. 3. 3. Electron spin resonance study showed that the isoproterenol-treatment also affected a membrane physical property, which may be through these compositional changes in membrane constituents.
