De Bruyne and Polar Lipids - the missing link

Figure 1. The most common structures of phospholipids are depicted: phospholipids with a glycerol backbone (GPLs); sphingomyelin as a representative of a sphingosine-backbone phospholipid (SPLs); and alkyl-phospholipids (Alkyl-GPLs) that have a fatty chain linked with an ether-bond at the sn-1 position of the glycerol backbone.

Figure 3. Structures of bioactive marine phospholipids as elucidated previously by Sioriki et al. and Nasopoulou et al. [80,85]. Generally, PC and PE derivatives exhibit the greatest bioactivity in marine sources.

at the top you got the best player in the Premier League today: Kevin

Figs 1 and 3 are from this paper of ours.

What is the missing link?

What common features do Kevin and Polar lipids share?
