The diffusion-mediated intervesicle transfer of a variety of fluorescent N-(S-bimanylmercaptosuccinyl)phosphatidylethanolamines (BMS-PEs), and of a more limited series of radiolabeled phosphatidylcholines (PCs), has been investigated as a function of the acyl chain composition of the labeled molecules and the composition of the lipid vesicles. Increasing the total acyl chain length of a BMS-PE by two methylene residues increases the free energy of activation for probe desorption from a lipid… CONTINUE READING
