Phase Transitions of Phospholipid Monolayers Penetrated by Apolipoproteins

Experiments for adsorbing apolipoproteins (CI and AII) on a phospholipid (DPPC, rac-1,2-dipalmitoyl-snglycero-3-phosphocholine) monolayer were made. Our results indicate that lipoproteins in fact did not adsorb underneath the DPPC monolayer; instead lipoproteins actually penetrate the DPPC monolayer to form part of the monolayer at the air/water interface… CONTINUE READING
