The interaction of a class of oxonol dyes with sonicated phospholipid vesicles was followed optically. The spectra of vesicle-associated dyes resemble those found for the dyes in organic solvents, indicating that the oxonols occupy a hydrophobic region of the membrane. At equilibrium the affinity of the oxonols for the vesicles depends on the structure of the dye, the physical and chemical composition of the vesicles, and the ionic strength of the medium. The oxonols occupy soybean lipid… CONTINUE READING
