By isotopical labeling lipid lateral diffusion coefficients for each of the membrane constituents, including cholesterol, have been measured by 1H, 2H, and 19F pulsed field gradient NMR spectroscopy in macroscopically oriented lipid bilayers. This provides a means of obtaining detailed dynamic and compositional information in raft-forming lipid bilayers without introducing foreign molecules into the systems. The raft systems studied contained dioleoylphosphatidylcholine… CONTINUE READING
