Egg yolk phosphatidylcholine (PC) liposomes were prepared by ultrasonic irradiation. At least 25 mol% of coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) can be incorporated nonstoichiometrically into PC liposomes. Electron microscopy showed no visible influence of CoQ-10 on the membrane structure. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of sonicated PC liposomes containing CoQ-10 showed… CONTINUE READING
