Liposomes composed of 1,2-di-(5Z,9Z)-5,9-hexacosadienoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine underwent an endothermic phase transition at 42°C. Cholesterol or the marine sterols studied did not affect this transition to an appreciable extent, but rather were excluded from the phospholipid bilayers. Membranes composed of 1,2-di-(5Z,9Z)-5,9-hexacosadienoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine displayed very similar phase properties. Effects of the marine sterols on dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine bilayers were also investigated. © 1986.
