Fourier transform infrared and Raman spectroscopies are used to study the effects of cholesterol on human erythrocyte membrane acyl chain organization (mobility and conformation) and protein secondary structure. Compared to normal red cell membranes (approximately equal to 0.8 mol of cholesterol/mol of phospholipid) (C/P), acyl chain mobility is greater for… CONTINUE READING
