To gain some insight into the structural and functional roles of sterols in higher plant cells, various plant sterols have been incorporated into soybean phosphatidylcholine (PtdCho) bilayers and tested for their ability to regulate water permeability and acyl chain ordering. Sitosterol was the most efficient sterol in reducing the water permeability of(More)
The typical plant sterols (sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol) were compared with respect to their ability to regulate membrane fluidity of soybean phosphatidylcholine (PC) vesicles. Fluidity changes were monitored by the steady-state fluorescence anisotropy with 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene as a probe and assigned to a measure of the acyl chain(More)
Forrester talked with 22 large organizations in North America, Europe, and Asia to understand their methods for achieving business performance improvement through investment in CRM initiatives.
