Abstract: The seasonal effect on the hydrolytic and transalkylating activity of phospholipase D in the membranes of rat liver has been demonstrated. In summer the hydrolytic and transalkylating activity of the phospholipase D in rat liver mitochondria increased compared to the activity in winter. This implies that the rate of the formation of phospholipids in rat liver mitochondrial membranes is higher in summer. Perhaps, the revealed hydrolase-transferase reactions of phospholipase D are regular links in a single mechanism of seasonal compensatory-adapting responses of organisms.
