Interaction between alpha-tocopherol and heteroacid phosphatidylcholines with different amounts of unsaturation.

Differential scanning calorimetry was used to study the influence of a alpha-tocopherol on the thermotropic properties of model membranes composed by a series of heteroacid phosphatidylcholines with different amount of unsaturation in the sn-2 chain. The effect of alpha-tocopherol on 1,2-distearoylglycerophosphocholine (18:0,18:0), 1-stearoyl-2… CONTINUE READING
