    The site of palmitoylation of the phosphatidylinositol moiety of the glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol membrane anchor of Trypanosoma brucei procyclic acidic repetitive protein was studied by using periodate oxidation. Analysis of the products by g.c.-m.s. allowed the assignment of 40 and 60% of the palmitate to the 2-position and the 3-position respectively of the myo-inositol ring.
