Binding of DNA to liposomes containing different derivatives of sphingosine.


Binding of DNA to dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) liposomes containing different sphingosine derivatives was investigated. DNA labelled with adriamycin was used as a fluorescence quencher and its membrane association was observed by resonance energy transfer from liposomes incorporating a pyrene-derivatized lipid bisPDPC as a donor and containing 19… (More)
