(Currently studying high-school Biochemistry)
I'm unable to distinguish between phospholipids and phosphoglycerides from their "definitions" (Courtesy: Wikipedia)
Which suggests that phospholipids necessarily contain a glycerol "bridge" that connects the fatty acid tail to the phosphate head. To me, this looks like,
"Glycerol-based phospholipids"?! But aren't phospholipids already 'glycerol-based'?
If both phospholipids are glycerol-based, and if phosphoproteins are "glycerol-based phospholipids"...how are they any different?
What am I missing here?
