This study aims at characterizing the structure and some properties of phospholipid multi-lamellar vesicles (MLVs) containing the oxidized species gamma-palmitoyl-beta-(9-hydroperoxy-10,12-octadecanedienoyl)-lecithin (HPPLPC), gamma-palmitoyl-beta-(9-hydroxy-10,12-octadecanedienoyl)-lecithin (HOPLPC), gamma-palmitoyl-beta-glutaroyl-lecithin (GlPPC) and gamma-palmitoyl-beta-azelaoyl-lecithin (AzPPC). Sepharose 4B gel-chromatography was used to ensure and check that only MLVs are used in EPR… Expand
Lipid peroxidation and water penetration in lipid bilayers: a W-band EPR study.
TLDR
The EPR and MD data on model membranes demonstrate that cell membrane damage by oxidative stress cause alteration of water penetration in the bilayer. Expand
Does hydrogen bonding contribute to lipoperoxidation-dependent membrane fluidity variation? An EPR-spin labeling study.
TLDR
The observed ability of pure diHpLPC to form rigid and disordered SPB and MLV bilayers is proposed to be dependent on the cross bridging of oxidized linoleoyl chains by mutual hydrogen bonding of hydroperoxyl groups. Expand
Cholesterol attenuates and prevents bilayer damage and breakdown in lipoperoxidized model membranes. A spin labeling EPR study.
TLDR
It is concluded that membrane cholesterol may exert a beneficial and protective role against bilayer damage caused by oxidized phospholipids formation following reactive oxygen species attack to biomembranes. Expand
Comparative 5-doxylstearoyllecithin and 3-doxylcholestane EPR spin labeling study of phospholipid bilayer perturbation by different oxidized lecithin species.
TLDR
The results suggest that CD-PCs might yield SPB bilayer structures with a disordered hydrophobic core, while pure CC-PC more probably forms non-bilayer disordered structures, possibly micelles or mixed micelle/bilayers. Expand
[Diffusion studies of redox-sensitive nitroxyl spin probes through bilayer lipid membranes using 300 MHz electron spin resonance spectrometer].
TLDR
Electron spin resonance studies were carried out for 14N-labeled deuterated 3-methoxy-carbonyl-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-pyrrolidine-1-oxyl and carboxy-PROXYL and confirmed the permeable and impermeable nature of nitroxyl spin probes. Expand
Biophysics of lipid bilayers containing oxidatively modified phospholipids: insights from fluorescence and EPR experiments and from MD simulations.
TLDR
It was shown that the presence of the investigated oxPCs in phospholipid model membranes may have the following consequences: decrease of the lipid order, lowering of phase transition temperatures, lateral expansion and thinning of the bilayer, alterations of bilayer hydration profiles, increased lipid mobility, and augmented flip-flop. Expand
Influence of lipid composition and model peptides on lateral organization of lipid layers
Oxidized phospholipids (OxPLs) are known to be present in living organisms due to oxidative stress. However, the physiological function of OxPLs is still not fully understood. They have been shown toExpand
Cholesterol Protects the Oxidized Lipid Bilayer from Water Injury: An All-Atom Molecular Dynamics Study
TLDR
In cholesterol-rich membranes, the bilayer does not form pores at concentrations of 60 mol% oxPL as was shown in previous simulations in the absence of cholesterol, and cholesterol also resists altering its tilt angle, helping to maintain membrane integrity. Expand
Oxidatively modified fatty acyl chain determines physicochemical properties of aggregates of oxidized phospholipids.
TLDR
This result provides first direct evidence that because of the specific chemical composition of the sn-2 fatty acyl chain aggregates of particular tOx-PL possess a distinctive set of physicochemical properties. Expand
Characterization of oxidized phospholipids in oxidatively modified low density lipoproteins by nanoflow liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that nLC-ESI-MS(n) can be utilized for the separation and structural characterization of complicated Ox-PL mixtures, including long chain products with hydroxylation or hydroperoxylation at an unsaturated acyl chain, and short chain products from the cleavage of unsaturated fatty acyl chains to form lysophospholipids (LPLs).

EPR studies of phospholipid bilayers after lipoperoxidation. 1. Inner molecular order and fluidity gradient.
TLDR
It is concluded that the early stages of lipoperoxidation bring about disordering of the phospholipid bilayer interior rather than fluidity alterations, and that prolonged oxidation may result in loss of structural and chemical properties of the bilayer until the structure no longer holds. Expand
Glutaryl phosphatidylcholine effects on pH and composition dependent behavior of liposomes studied by spin-labeling method.
TLDR
The temperature dependence of dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine liposome dynamic behavior indicates that the glutaryl lecithin effect is completely different above and below the gel-to-liquid crystalline phase transition point. Expand
Different oxidized phospholipid molecules unequally affect bilayer packing.
TLDR
It is concluded that the effects of different oxidized phospholipid bilayer structure cannot be generalized, as happens with batch-oxidizedospholipids, and that the use of defined oxidizer molecular species for membrane oxidative stress guarantees a more reliable and detailed response. Expand
Electron spin resonance characterization of liquid ordered phase of detergent-resistant membranes from RBL-2H3 cells.
TLDR
The hypothesis that plasma membranes containing high concentrations of cholesterol also contain a liquid ordered phase that may coexist with a liquid crystalline phase is supported. Expand
Oxidized phospholipids induce phase separation in lipid vesicles
TLDR
It is concluded that oxidized lipid induces phase separation in more rigid DPPC‐ rich membranes, while leaving fluidity unaffected in more fluid LPPC‐rich membranes, and at higher temperature. Expand
Characterization of two oxidatively modified phospholipids in mixed monolayers with DPPC.
TLDR
The data support the view that lipid oxidation modifies both the small-scale structural dynamics of biological membranes as well as their more macroscopic lateral organization. Expand
Cooperativity of the phase transition in single- and multibilayer lipid vesicles.
TLDR
It is found that it is the vesicle size which limits the cooperativity of the transition in the small, single-bilayer vesicles, and for the possibility of achieving lateral communication in the plane of the membrane. Expand
Lipid-protein interaction. The incorporation of myelin proteolipid apoprotein into phosphatidylcholine bilayers.
TLDR
PLA is used to study the perturbations produced by this protein on phosphatidylcholine bilayers, using infrared spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance and fluorescence polarisation, and it is indicated that the microviscosity of the bilayer increases as a function of the protein mole fraction. Expand
Influence of dicarboxylic phosphatidylcholines on phosphatidylcholine liposomes as revealed by gel chromatography and electron microscopy.
TLDR
The data confirm that the disorganization of liposomal membranes by dicarboxylic phosphatidylcholine depends on the fatty acid composition of phosphate and on the presence of dicetyl phosphate. Expand
Lipid membrane polarity profiles by high-field EPR.
TLDR
High-field electron paramagnetic resonance of systematically spin-labeled lipid chains is used here to determine the polarity profiles of cholesterol-containing phospholipid membranes, demonstrating that the transmembrane polarity profile registered by spin labels corresponds to water penetration into the membrane.
