Phosphoglyceride extracts of beef heart mitochondria stimulated the transport of cations and "permeable" anions across a membrane barrier of chloroform in a U-tube. Neutral lipids fractionated from total lipid extracts of heart mitochondria were essentially void of transport activity. Remarkable differences were noted between the capacity of the various phospholipids to support transport of ions in the U-tube system.
