Glycolipids are an important part of almost all biological membranes. Their effects on membrane structure and their interactions with phospholipids, however, have not been extensively studied so far. We have investigated the phase behavior and intermolecular interactions in dry and rehydrated bilayers made from the phospholipid egg phosphatidylcholine (EPC) and the plant chloroplast glycolipid digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG), or from a mixture (1:1) of these lipids, using Fourier transform… CONTINUE READING
