SummaryThe amino acid permeability of membranes is of interest because they are one of the key solutes involved in cell function. Membrane permeability coefficients (P) for amino acid classes, including neutral, polar, hydrophobic, and charged species, have been measured and compared using a variety of techniques. Decreasing lipid chain length increased permeability slightly (5-fold), while variations in pH had only minor effects on the permeability coefficients of the amino acids tested in… Expand
Different effects of cholesterol on membrane permeation of arginine and tryptophan revealed by bias-exchange metadynamics simulations.
TLDR
Improved microscopic understanding of amino-acid permeation through cholesterol-containing DPPC membrane systems is provided and strong but different orientation dependence between Arg+ and Trp permeations is observed. Expand
Dynamic covalent transport of amino acids across lipid bilayers.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the potential of hemiaminal formation for the facilitated transport of substrates containing primary and secondary amino groups for transmembrane transport of amino acids by the formation of a three-component assembly. Expand
Effects of Phospholipid Composition on the Transfer of a Small Cationic Peptide Across a Model Biological Membrane.
TLDR
The study reveals that protonated lysine residues can be buried further inside an ether lipid membrane than an ester lipid membrane, while branched lipids are found to stabilize less the charged form compared to their unbranched lipid chain counterparts. Expand
A membrane transporter for tryptophan composed of RNA.
TLDR
A specific passive membrane transporter whose properties overlap those of single-molecule transporter proteins, can be made of RNA alone, suggesting that RNA aggregation is required for both binding and enhanced tryptophan permeability. Expand
Preferential Equilibrium Partitioning of Positively Charged Tryptophan into Phosphatidylcholine Bilayer Membranes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Trp+ partitions into the lipid bilayer membrane to a greater degree than Trp- by interacting with the ester linkage of a phosphatidylcholine lipid, where it is stabilized by the electron withdrawing glycerol functional group. Expand
Amino acid capture by aqueous interfaces. Implications for biological uptake.
TLDR
It is shown that neutral tautomers exhibit a noticeable affinity for the interface that increases with increasing hydrophobicity of the side chain, and a two-step mechanism for the water-to-organic phase transfer that involves neutralization of a partially hydrated zwitterion in the organic layer prior to uptake into the bulk is suggested.

Unassisted transport of N-acetyl-L-tryptophanamide through membrane: experiment and simulation of kinetics.
TLDR
The permeation of a blocked tryptophan through a 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine membrane is investigated to probe unassisted or physical transport and suggests critical dependence of transport time on permeant size and hydrophilicity. Expand
Kinetics and thermodynamics of chlorpromazine interaction with lipid bilayers: effect of charge and cholesterol.
TLDR
A detailed study on the kinetics and thermodynamics for the interaction of chlorpromazine (CPZ), an antipsychotic drug used in the treatment of schizophrenia, with neutral and negatively charged lipid bilayers is described. Expand
Chiral selective transmembrane transport of amino acids through artificial channels.
TLDR
Peptide-appended pillar[n]arene derivatives have been synthesized andKinetic measurements using the fluorescent labeling method with lipid vesicles revealed that these molecules can efficiently mediate the transport of amino acids across lipid membranes at a very low channel-to-lipid ratio. Expand

Selective diffusion of neutral amino acids across lipid bilayers.
TLDR
The lecithin-dependent change in the selectivity shown between glycine and phenylalanine is suggested as being brought about by entropic effects in the hydrocarbon core of the phospholipid bilayer. Expand
Permeability of lipid bilayers to amino acids and phosphate.
TLDR
The results suggest that the permeation rates for the neutral, polar and charged amino acids are controlled by bilayer fluctuations and transient defects, rather than partition coefficients and Born energy barriers. Expand
Permeability of amino acids into liposomes.
TLDR
A simple and rapid assay for the measurement of permeability of amino acids into liposome membrane was carried out by using the liposomes trapping D-amino acid oxidase inside the membrane, which depended on the lipid composition of the membrane. Expand
Influence of charge, charge distribution, and hydrophobicity on the transport of short model peptides into liposomes in response to transmembrane pH gradients.
TLDR
It is concluded that different charge distributions in short peptides of identical amino acid composition can strongly influence the ability of these groups to associate with and permeate across lipid bilayers. Expand
Effects of surface charges and cholesterol content on amino acid permeabilities of small unilamellar vesicles.
TLDR
The permeabilities of amino acids through bilayer lipid membranes were determined using small unilamellar vesicles (SUV) and an increase in the amount of negative charges introduced by dicetylphosphate enhanced the permeability of the positively charged amino acid. Expand
Uptake of basic amino acids and peptides into liposomes in response to transmembrane pH gradients.
TLDR
The uptake of derivatives of lysine and a pentapeptide into large unilamellar vesicle systems in response to transmembrane pH gradients has been examined and it is shown that the presence of a pH gradient results in the rapid and efficient accumulation of these weak base amino acid and peptide derivatives into LUVs.

Permeability of lipid bilayers to water and ionic solutes.
TLDR
It is concluded that at least two varieties of transient defects are required to explain permeation of water and ionic solutes, including proton-hydroxide flux. Expand

The response of fluorescent amines to pH gradients across liposome membranes.
TLDR
It is concluded that 9-aminoacridine is the preferred fluorescent probe for use in the range of ΔpH = 2–4 pH units and that Liposomes offer a model membrane system in which controlled pH gradients may be established. Expand
Permeability of small nonelectrolytes through lipid bilayer membranes
TLDR
Diffusion of small nonelectrolytes through planar lipid bilayer membranes was examined by correlating the permeability coefficients of 22 solutes with their partition coefficients between water and four organic solvents, and the molecular volume dependence of solute permeability suggests that the membrane barrier behaves more like a polymer than a liquid hydrocarbon.
