Calorimetric, X-ray diffraction, and 31P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) studies of aqueous dispersions of 1,2-dihexadecyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DHPC) gel phases at low temperatures (-60 to 22 degrees C) show thermal, structural, and dynamic differences when compared to aqueous dispersions of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) gel phases at corresponding temperatures. Differential scanning calorimetry of DHPC dispersions demonstrates a reversible, low-enthalpy… Expand
Structure and interactions of ether- and ester-linked phosphatidylethanolamines.
TLDR
Electron density profiles of DHPE, in addition to calculations of the lipid layer thickness, confirmed that DHPE in the gel state forms a noninterdigitated bilayer at all hydrations. Expand
Phospholipids chiral at phosphorus. Characterization of the sub-gel phase of thiophosphatidylcholines by use of X-ray diffraction, phosphorus-31 nuclear magnetic resonance, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
TLDR
X-ray diffraction, 31P NMR, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy results suggest that DPPsC is packed in different subcells relative to DPPC in the subgel phase and shows enhanced factor group splitting in theSubgel phase. Expand
Thermal phase behaviour and structure of hydrated mixtures between dipalmitoyl- and dihexadecylphosphatidylcholine.
TLDR
The transition parameters of the main gel-to-liquid crystalline transition show a monotonous dependence on the composition, indicating ideal miscibility of the two lipids, in keeping with the closely similar structures of the pure, hydrated lipids in the P beta' and L alpha states. Expand
Molecular interactions of ether-linked phospholipids.
TLDR
It is found that small amounts of the appropriate phospholipid can seriously compromise the formation of the L beta I and HII phases. Expand
Influence of the interdigitated gel phase in mixtures of ether-linked and monofluorinated ester-linked phospholipids.
TLDR
Results support that incorporating F-DPPC progressively stabilizes the L(β)I phase of DHPC until the membrane is fully interdigitated below the main transition temperature (T(m), and demonstrate that the gel phase behavior ofDHPC is highly sensitive to changes in its environment. Expand
Scanning Calorimetry Studies
ABSTRACT The arrangement of the antimicrobial peptide alamethicin was studied by oriented circular dichroism, 31 P solid-state NMR, and differential scanning calorimetry in ether-linked phospholipidExpand
Gel phase polymorphism in ether-linked dihexadecylphosphatidylcholine bilayers.
TLDR
Structural parameters indicate a hydration-dependent gel----gel structural transition between a normal bilayer and the chain-interdigitated bilayer (four chains per polar group) arrangement described previously for DHPC. Expand
Effects of ether vs. ester linkage on lipid bilayer structure and water permeability.
The structure and water permeability of bilayers composed of the ether-linked lipid, dihexadecylphosphatidylcholine (DHPC), were studied and compared with the ester-linked lipid,Expand
The effect of cholesterol on lipid dynamics and packing in diether phosphatidylcholine bilayers. X-ray diffraction and 2H-NMR study.
TLDR
The low-angle lamellar reflections of DHPC at 22 degrees C in the absence of cholesterol are indicative of an interdigitated phase, demonstrating that cholesterol facilitates the conversion from aninterdigitated to a non-interdigitate phase. Expand
Physical properties of glycosyldiacylglycerols: an infrared spectroscopic study of the gel-phase polymorphism of 1,2-di-O-acyl-3-O-(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)-sn-glycerols.
TLDR
It is suggested that the gel phase formed by any given homologue at a given temperature or pressure is that which maximizes the sometimes competing requirements for the optimal packing of the sugar headgroups and the hydrocarbon chains. Expand

TLDR
Differential scanning calorimetry and x-ray diffraction have been used to study the interaction of hydrated N-palmitoylgalactosylsphingosine (NPGS) and dipalMIToylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), finding complete miscibility of NPGS into hydrated DPPC bilayers is observed in both the bilayer gel and liquid-crystal phases.

This analysis indicates that d62-dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine in excess H2O undergoes a sharp phase transition at approximately 37 degrees C and that there appears to be hysteresis in the phase transition of approximately 1 degree C. Expand

TLDR
X-ray diffraction studies suggest that in beta-DPPC the glycerol backbone adopts an orientation parallel to the bilayer surface, in contrast to its usual perpendicular orientation in alpha-DP PC, which results in an increased intramolecular chain separation. Expand

An analysis of the spectral line shapes leads to the conclusion that the appearance of the isotropic-like line in the P beta' phase is primarily due to a conformational change at the sn-2 carbonyl which is complete at the main transition. Expand
