The aim of the present study on organotin compounds, which are toxic to biological systems, was to determine the relationship between the compounds' toxicity and their location in the lipid bilayer of the biological membrane. It was assumed that the degree of disturbance caused within the lipid bilayer of the membrane, which in turn depends on the depth of incorporation, was an appropriate measure of toxicity. Previous results from our studies on the effect of organotin chlorides on membranes… CONTINUE READING
