Thermodynamic interpretation of effects of alcohols on membrane lipid fluidity.

Abstract

The effect of a series of amphiphilic compounds, the first eight n-aliphatic alcohols, on the fluidity of rat enterocyte brush border was determined by ESR using 5-doxyl stearic acid as a lipid spin probe. Packing order variations are compared to the relative hydrophobic effect of the alcohols. The concentrations, [Ci]5 of each alcohol that decrease the… (More)
