In order to elucidate the existence of a hydrogen bond between alpha-tocopherol and phospholipids in bilayer liposomes, the effects of the presence or absence of alpha-tocopherol or its acetate on either the permeability of liposomes to chromate ions or the fluidity of liposomes composed of the different kinds of lecithin [egg yolk phosphatidylcholine (EPC), 1-oleoyl-2-palmitoylphosphatidylcholine (OPPC), or 1-O-oleyl-2-O-palmitoylphosphatidylcholine (OPPCE)] were examined. From the results… Expand
