Inverted cubic (QII) phases form in hydrated N-methylated dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DOPE-Me). Previous work indicated that QII phases in this and other systems might be metastable structures. Whether or not QII phases are stable has important implications for models of the factors determining the relative stability of bilayer and nonbilayer phases and of the mechanisms of transitions between those phases. Here, using X-ray diffraction and very slow scan rate differential scanning… CONTINUE READING
