The interactions of dpPC with ganglioside GD3 and two lactones. GD3LacI or GD3LacII, in lipid monolayers occur with reduced, unaltered, or increased molecular area and surface potential/molecule, respectively. dpPC is fully miscible with GD3 and GD3LacI but films with GD3LacII show immiscibility above 75 mol% lactone. At low proportions of GD3 in mixtures with dpPC, GD3 undergoes condensation and depolarization; dpPC is depolarized and its molecular area is reduced above 50 mol% GD3. GD3LacI… CONTINUE READING
