We have determined calorimetrically the phase transition temperature (Tm) values of five sn-1 saturated/sn-2 unsaturated phosphatidylethanolamines (PE) in which the sn-1 acyl chain has 20 carbons and the sn-2 acyl chain has 18 carbons with different number and position of the cis double bond. When these Tm values are combined with the five published Tm values of related unsaturated PE, a unifying Tm diagram is generated for the first time. Moreover, as the molecular mechanics simulated… CONTINUE READING
