Molecules incorporated into biomembranes often bear both a core and an alkyl chain in a single molecule (e.g., sterols). To clarify the effects of these two parts of a molecule, the phase behavior of a 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) bilayer containing 4-n-alkyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl (nCB) (n = 0-8) was investigated. The trends of the main(More)
Towards a greater understanding of the effects of organic molecules in biomembranes, the effects of a flexible alkyl chain on the morphologies of phospholipid vesicles are investigated. Vesicles composed of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphocholine and tetradecane (TD) rupture during cooling from the liquid-crystalline phase to the gel phase. A model(More)
