X-ray diffraction is used to solve the low-resolution structures of fully hydrated aqueous dispersions of seven different diacyl phosphatidylethanolamines (PEs) whose hydrocarbon chains have the same effective chain length but whose structures vary widely. Both the lower-temperature, liquid-crystalline lamellar (L(alpha)) and the higher-temperature, inverted hexagonal (H(II)) phase structures are solved, and the resultant internal dimensions (d-spacing, water layer thickness, average lipid… CONTINUE READING
