From the viscosity dependence of the 31P NMR signals, the diffusion coefficients DT of phospholipid molecules in the surface monolayer of HDL, LDL and VLDL have been determined. DT for HDL3 and HDL2 are found to be 2.3 X 10(-8) cm2/s and 1.8 X 10(-8) cm2/s, respectively. These values are similar to values reported for diffusion of phospholipid molecules in(More)
The structure and motion of phospholipids in human plasma lipoproteins have been studied by using 31P NMR. Lateral diffusion coefficients, DT, obtained from the viscosity dependence of the 31P NMR line widths, were obtained for very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoproteins (HDL2, HDL3), and egg PC/TO(More)
Selectively labelled lipids have been incorporated into the surface monolayer of human serum low density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL). From 3 to 17 mol% of phosphatidylcholine, selectively deuterated at various positions along the sn-2-acyl chain, was transferred from unilamellar vesicles to VLDL using a partially purified(More)
Lipid-lipid interactions between the core and monolayer have been studied by using reconstituted high-density lipoproteins (rHDLs) composed of apoHDL3 with either dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) or egg phosphatidylcholine (egg PC) as the monolayer and either cholesteryl oleate (CO) or triolein (TO) as the core. The effect of the monolayer on the core(More)
The order of phosphatidylcholine (PC) acyl chains in the surface monolayer of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and low density lipoproteins (LDL) has been determined from 2H nuclear magnetic resonance order parameters, SCD, using selectively deuterated PC or palmitic acids. From the computer simulated line shapes, we find two distinct phospholipid(More)
