Hexagonal packing of lipid acyl chains and membrane plasticity

Journal of Supramolecular Structure

Jan 1, 1976

D L DorsetC M Storzewski

Abstract

Electron microscope and electron diffraction observations on microcrystals of pure lipids (a phosphatidylethanolamine, two phosphatidylcholines, a phosphatidic acid, and a galactocerebroside) reveal an extreme flexibility of lipid layers when the acyl chains are hexagonally packed (d100...read more

GPI Anchoring

Glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) is a glycolipid anchor for several cell-surface proteins that play a role in various biological processes, including signal transduction, prion disease pathogenesis, and immune response. Here is the latest research.
