The effect of incorporation of 1-palmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (PLPC) on the structure of the P(β)' ripple mesophase in aqueous dispersions of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) has been studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and scanning dilatometry (SD). For samples containing 34 wt. % 2H2O and 0-15 wt. % PLPC, a pretransition was observed by DSC. The pretransition disappears at 15 wt. % PLPC.

Abstract

The effect of incorporation of 1-palmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (PLPC) on the structure of the P(β)' ripple mesophase in aqueous dispersions of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) has been studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and scanning dilatometry (SD). For samples containing 34 wt. % 2H2O and 0-15 wt. % PLPC, a pretransition was observed by DSC. The pretransition disappears at 15 wt. % PLPC. The behavior of thermodynamic functions at the pretransition and main transition gives new insights on the structural changes produced by PLPC on bilayers of DPPC.
