Use of fluorescent probes in the study of phospholipid--sterol bilayers.

Abstract

1. The transfer of excitation energy between the fluorescent probes 1,6-diphenylhexa-1,3,5-triene and 12-(9-anthroyl)stearic acid and the cholesterol analogue cholesta-4,6-dien-3-one in phosphatidylcholine liposomes has been investigated. 2. The results indicate that probes and steroid are randomly distributed in the bilayer at steroid concentrations up to… (More)
