Multilayer membranes of DPPC (1,2–dipalmitoyl–sn–glycero–3– phosphatidylcholine) and mixture DPPC/POPC (1–palmitoyl–2–oleoyl–sn–glycero–3– phosphatidylcholine) in excess of water were investigated by small angle X–ray scattering and neutron small angle scattering. Structural parameters of lipid bilayers were determined in a wide temperature range. It was shown that addition of the POPC to the DPPC/H2O does not change the temperature of the DPPC main phase transition Tm. The observed phase… CONTINUE READING
