The interaction of L-phenylalanine with a 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) monolayer at the air-water interface was explored using a combination of experimental techniques and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. By means of Langmuir trough methods and Brewster angle microscopy, L-phenylalanine was shown to significantly alter the interfacial tension and the surface domain morphology of the DPPC film. In addition, confocal microscopy was used to explore the aggregation state… Expand
Effects of Phenylalanine on the Liquid-Expanded and Liquid-Condensed States of Phosphatidylcholine Monolayers
TLDR
The adsorption of Phe can be described by a cooperative process in non-independent sites suggesting that Phe/lipid systems reorganize to form new structures at a high degree of coverage in 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3 phosphocholine (DMPC) and DPPC. Expand
The Partitioning of Small Aromatic Molecules to Air-Water and Phospholipid Interfaces Mediated by Non-Hydrophobic Interactions.
TLDR
The possibility of clustering is investigated through a combination of Langmuir trough, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), fluorescence self-quenching, and mass spectroscopy measurements, and it is concluded that clustering does not occur in solution to a significant extent for these molecules, but interfacial clusters are likely.

Phenylalanine Interacts with Oleic Acid-Based Vesicle Membrane. Understanding the Molecular Role of Fibril-Vesicle Interaction under the Context of Phenylketonuria.
TLDR
The mutual reconciliation of the experimental outputs portrays the state of the art, which accounts for the fibril-induced alterations of the properties of the oleic acid vesicle membrane, the mimicking setup of the cellular membrane, thereby informing us that alterations of such a property of the membrane should be taken into active consideration during the rational development of therapeutic modulators against disorders like PKU.

Antagonist Effect of L- Phenylalanine and the Enantiomeric Mixture Containing D-Phenylalanine on Phospholipid Vesicle Membrane.
TLDR
The study proposes that whatever the rigidity membrane lost due to interaction with L-Phe, is found to be reinstated, in fact, increased in presence of the enantiomeric mixture containing both D and L- Phenylalanine. Expand
Optimization of Amino Acid Sequence of Fmoc-Dipeptides for Interaction with Lipid Membranes.
TLDR
This study suggests that the adjustment of the hydrophobicity of the Fmoc-dipeptides within a defined range might optimize their efficiency for interaction with the lipid membranes. Expand
Phenylalanine intercalation parameters for liquid-disordered phase domains – a membrane model study
TLDR
Phe appeared to discriminate between DPPE and DPPC packing, and use two modes of intercalation, which is consistent with a Phe monomer intercalating into membrane by inserting the phenyl ring nearly normal to the membrane surface. Expand

TLDR
The experimental cross sections indicate that phenyl-alanine self-assembles at neutral pH into oligomers composed of multiple layers of four monomers, indicating cytotoxicity of Phe oligomers and fibrils may be due to favorable interactions between the hydrophobic exterior and the cell membrane and strong interactions betweenThe hydrophilic core of PHe oligomer and ions, resulting in ion leakage and cellular damage.
