Interaction of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine and dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine-d54 mixtures with glycophorin. A fourier transform infrared investigation.


Glycophorin from the human erythrocyte membrane has been isolated in pure form and reconstituted into large unilamellar vesicles comprised of binary mixtures of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-3-sn-phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and chain perdeuterated 1,2-dimyristoyl-3-sn-phosphatidylcholine (DMPC-d54). The effect of temperature and protein on lipid structure and mixing was… (More)
