Computational Models of the Intestinal Environment. 3. The Impact of Cholesterol Content and pH on Mixed Micelle Colloids.

In this study, we use molecular dynamics (MD) and experimental techniques (nephelometry and dynamic light scattering) to investigate the influence of cholesterol content and pH on the colloidal structures that form in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract upon lipid digestion. We demonstrate that the ionization state of the molecular species is a primary driver… CONTINUE READING
