Structural characterization of novel cationic diC16-amidine bilayers: Evidence for partial interdigitation.

In this work, the bilayer structure of novel cationic lipid diC16-amidine was compared to the one of zwitterionic dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine ( DPPC), which shares the same hydrophobic domain. Differential scanning calorimetry shows that DPPC and diC16-am idine bilayers have similar phase transition temperatures, but diC16-a midine membranes display a… CONTINUE READING
