P-31 nuclear magnetic resonance studies of the appearance of an isotropic component in dielaidoylphosphatidylethanolamine.

We have utilized phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance, which provides an excellent means of characterizing the physical state of lipids, to investigate the polymorphic phase behavior of pure dielaidoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DEPE). We have observed a sharp isotropic component in the typical bilayer and inverted hexagonal P-31 NMR spectra. This component… CONTINUE READING
