Pulsed field gradient NMR was utilized to directly determine the lipid lateral diffusion coefficient for the following macroscopically aligned bilayers: dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC), sphingomyelin (SM), palmitoyloleoylphosphatidylcholine (POPC), and dioleoylphosphatidylcholine (DOPC) with addition of cholesterol (CHOL) up to approximately 40 mol %.(More)
The pulsed field gradient NMR method for measuring self-diffusion has been used for a direct determination of the lateral diffusion coefficient of cholesterol, fluorine labeled at the 6-position, for an oriented lamellar liquid-crystalline phase of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC)/cholesterol/water. It is found that the diffusion coefficients of DMPC(More)
This mini-review focuses on the utilization of pulsed magnetic field gradients to measure diffusional motion in systems of macroscopically oriented lipid bilayers. The NMR diffusion technique is proposed to have appreciable potential for future biophysical investigations in the field of membrane biology. Topics such as transport of molecules both across and(More)
The phase equilibria of the system soybean phosphatidylcholine, diacylglycerol, and water has been determined using a combination of classical methods together with x-ray diffraction and NMR techniques. In particular, the extent of the phase regions of the lamellar, the reversed hexagonal, and the cubic phases have been determined. By pulsed field gradient(More)
A partial phase diagram of the system N,N-dimethyldodecylamine oxide (DDAO)/water/gramicidin D was determined by 2H-NMR. Both 2H2O and perdeuterated DDAO (DDAO-d31) were studied by solid state NMR techniques. Addition of gramicidin D to the micellar (L1), normal hexagonal (HI) and cubic (I) phases of DDAO induces phase separations, giving two-phase regions,(More)
Lipid lateral diffusion coefficients in the quarternary system of dioleoylphosphatidylcholine (DOPC), sphingomyelin, cholesterol, and water were determined by the pulsed field gradient NMR technique on macroscopically aligned bilayers. The molar ratio between dioleoylphosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin was set to 1:1, the cholesterol content was varied(More)
The pulsed field gradient (pfg)-NMR method for measurements of translational diffusion of molecules in macroscopically aligned lipid bilayers is described. This technique is proposed to have an appreciable potential for investigations in the field of lipid and membrane biology. Transport of molecules in the plane of the bilayer can be successfully studied,(More)
Liquid-disordered/liquid-ordered two-phase coexistence regions in hydrated bilayers have been investigated for sphingomyelins (SMs) of three different origins: egg, brain, and milk with the pulsed-field gradient NMR technique for lateral diffusion measurement. It is found that the three SMs have the same diffusional behavior in bilayers of SM alone, but in(More)
By isotopical labeling lipid lateral diffusion coefficients for each of the membrane constituents, including cholesterol, have been measured by 1H, 2H, and 19F pulsed field gradient NMR spectroscopy in macroscopically oriented lipid bilayers. This provides a means of obtaining detailed dynamic and compositional information in raft-forming lipid bilayers(More)
Effects of peptide hydrophobicity on lipid membrane binding, incorporation, and defect formation was investigated for variants of the complement-derived antimicrobial peptide CNY21 (CNYITELRRQHARASHLGLAR), in anionic 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (POPE)/1-palmitoyl-2-oleoylphosphatidylglycerol (POPG) and zwitterionic(More)
