The transbilayer diffusion rates and self-association of spin-labeled glycosyl carrier lipids and other isoprenoids have been studied in model phospholipid membranes. Transposition rates of phosphorylated species in small (300 A) or large (greater than or equal to 1000 A) diameter unilamellar phosphatidylcholine (PC) vesicles are slow (t1/2 greater than 5 h at 25 degrees C); this argues against their proposed role in the transbilayer portage of sugar units during polysaccharide and glycoprotein… CONTINUE READING
