Rapid transmembrane movement of phosphatidylcholine in small unilamellar lipid vesicles formed by detergent removal.

Small unilamellar phosphatidylcholine vesicles, formed by solubilizing phosphatidylcholine with sodium cholate and removing the detergent by gel filtration, have been studied in their interaction with phospholipid exchange protein. The exchange of phosphatidylcholine between the vesicles and erythrocyte ghosts was greatly stimulated by the… CONTINUE READING
