Spinach chloroplast membranes and aqueous dispersions of their extracted lipids have been studied by spin label (stearic acid) electron spin resonance and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. Combined with electron microscope studies, first systematic evidence is found for the existence of a dynamic lipid-bilayer structure in the chloroplast membranes. 

5.4: Lipid Probes

  • Biology
TLDR
Lipid labeling offers an alternative to destructive methods that use detergents, such as the formation of homogeneous vesicles that are characteristically different than the native environments for most lipids, to induce phase separation or separate membranes, allowing for measurement made in native environments without immobilization.

A spin label study of sarcoplasmic vesicles.

TLDR
Spin labeled fatty acids have been incorporated as structural probes into sarcoplasmic vesicles isolated from rabbit skeletal muscle and the evaluation of the electron paramagnetic resonance spectra has yielded results suggesting that a direct lipidprotein interaction must play an essential role in the organization of the membranous lipids.

THE FLEXIBILITY GRADIENT IN BIOLOGICAL MEMBRANES *

TLDR
The present discussion is concerned with only one aspect of the flexibility problem, namely the question of how phospholipids can be packed into planar lamellar arrays when the fatty acid chains have a large flexibility gradient.

The ultrastructure of the chloroplast lamellae

TLDR
The present study has shown that the thylakoid membrane consists of a central layer, probably lipid, covered on both sides with protein particles, and it is proposed that fixation causes uncoiling of the protein molecules.
