The effect of chlorpromazine on subcellular biosynthesis, hydrolysis, and transfer of lipids and liponucleotides participating in the biosynthesis of polyglycerophosphatides in guinea pig liver was studied. Chlorpromazine showed an apparent stimulation of accumulation of phosphatidic acid and CDP-diglycerides in microsomal membranes and(More)
The level of biosynthesis and the composition of polyglycerophosphatides (phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidyglycerolphosphate, and diphosphatidylglycerol or cardiolipin) and phosphatidylinositols were examined in mitochondria and microsomes, respectively, isolated from neonatal and adult rat heart and liver. Biosynthesis of [3H]polyglycerophosphatides [((More)
The topological distribution of bovine serum albumin (BSA) in multilamellar vesicles (MLV) and unilamellar vesicles (ULV) composed of 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphorylcholine (DML)/cholesterol (molar ratio, 3:1) was studied by ESR using hydrophobic spin-labelled lecithins and hydrophilic Tempocholine. A spin-labelled BSA was also prepared,(More)
A convenient method for the enzymatic preparation of sn-3-[2-3H]phosphatidic acids carrying also 5-, 12-, or 16-nitroxide stearic acids, from sn-3-[2-3H]glycerophosphate and isolated guinea pig liver microsomes, is described in detail. The procedure allows a simultaneous preparation of three spin-labelled sn-3-[2-3H]phosphatidic acids of yields 3-3.5 mumol(More)
To assess the most favourable phospholipid composition of a liposomal carrier for antibiotics, small multilamellar liposomes were prepared from phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylglycerol of varying fatty acid composition in the presence of erythromycin A and azithromycin. Crude liposomes were subjected to Sepharose CL-4B column(More)
