A comparison of the packing behavior of egg phosphatidylcholine with cholesterol and biogenically related sterols in Langmuir monolayer films.


Cholesterol and selected derivatives were studied as mixed Langmuir monolayers with egg phosphatidylcholine (PC). As an extension of our earlier work, which employed binary sterol/PC mixtures, here we examined ternary mixed monolayers containing cholesterol along with an alternate sterol and PC in different molar ratios, using pressure-area isotherms. The… (More)
