Fatty acid transport across lipid bilayer planar membranes


The transport of palmitic acid (PA) across planar lipid bilayer membranes was measured using a high specific activity [14C]palmitate as tracer for PA. An all-glass trans chamber was employed in order to minimize adsorbance of PA onto the surface. Electrically neutral (diphytanoyl phosphatidylcholine) and charged (Azolectin) planar bilayers were maintained… (More)
