Effects of lipid-soluble substances on the thermotropic properties of liposome filtration.

Filtration of dimyristoyl phosphatidylcholine or dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine liposomes at various temperatures from 3 to 60 degrees C revealed a discontinuous change in filtration behavior centered about the gel-to-liquid crystal transition temperature. This change was continuous at temperatures immediately above or below the transition temperature… CONTINUE READING
