In vivo glycerolipid metabolism was studied in sciatic nerves of normal and Trembler mice. The results showed that two kinetically independent pathways were implicated in the labeling of diacylglycerophospholipids from [3H]palmitate: the Kennedy pathway and a 'direct acylation' pathway. In normal nerves, 45% of the glycerophospholipids were labeled, with a rate constant k3 = 3.9 x 10(-3) min-1, from phosphatidic acid and diacylglycerol intermediates, themselves formed with a rate constant of k1 = 0.24 min-1 from a free 3H-fatty acid pool, FFA1, that represents 45% of the total injected label. The remaining 55% of the glycerophospholipids were labeled from a kinetically distinct free 3H-fatty acid pool, FFA2, with a rate constant of k4 = 9.8 x 10(-2) min-1, via a process that does not implicate a detectably labeled metabolic intermediate ('direct acylation'). Glycerophospholipid labeling via the Kennedy pathway in the Trembler mouse sciatic nerves was reduced to 75% of the normal level, while labeling via the 'direct acylation' pathway was increased 1.4-fold. The values of the rate constants for free 3H-fatty acid utilisation (k1 and k4) were both increased about 2.5-fold, while that of glycerophospholipid formation from diacylglycerol (k3) was close to normal.
