Formation of Folds and Vesicles by Dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine Monolayers Spread in Excess

Abstract

Lipid monolayers exist in several biological systems, including the stratum corneum of the skin, the fluid tear film of the eye, the Eustachian tube of the ear, and airway and alveolar pulmonary surfactants. In this paper, the monolayer-to-bilayer transition was studied using dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) as the model. Depositing DPPC organic… (More)
