  volume={16 5},
This paper is the first in a series which extends introductory studies of parinaric acid and its phospholipid derivatives as membrane probes (Sklar, L.A., Hudson, B., and Simoni, R.D. (1975), Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. after U.S.A. 72, 1649; (1976), J. Supramol. Struct. 4, 449). Parinaric acid has a conjugated tetraene chromophore and exhibits many spectroscopic properties common to linear polyenes. Its absorption spectrum is characterized by a strong near-ultraviolet transition with vibronic… CONTINUE READING
