The effect of a water-soluble tris-galactoside terminated cholesterol derivative on the in vivo fate of small unilamellar vesicles in rats.

When the water-soluble cholesterol derivative, N-[tris [(beta-D-galactopyranosyloxy)methyl]methyl]-N alpha-[4-(5-cholesten-3 beta-yloxy)succinyl]glycinamide (tris-gal-chol) (Kempen et al. (1984) J. Medicin. Chem. 27, 1306-1312) is added as an aqueous micellar solution to a dispersion of small unilamellar phospholipid vesicles it rapidly associates with the… CONTINUE READING
