Abstract Structure of dipalmitoylphosphatidic acid (DPPA) bilayers in the presence of poly( l -lysine) is proposed from the results of X-ray diffraction obtained by a storage phosphir detector with a high resolution called an imaging plate. The small-angle X-ray diffraction pattern exhibits that DPPA/poly( l -lysine) complex forms a highly ordered multilamellar structure. The electron density profile of the DPPA/poly( l -lysine) complex draws that only one poly( l -lysine) layer is intercalated betweenthe neighboring DPPA bilayers. The wide-angle X-ray diffraction pattern suggests that the presence of poly( l -lysine) hardly affects the nature of hydrocarbon chain packing in the DPPA bilayers. The X-ray reflection from the DPPA/poly( l -lysine) complex indicates that the poly( l -kysine) molecules adopt a β-sheet conformation on the surface of the DPPA bilayers. The both surface areas occupied by a headgroup of the DPPA and by a lysine residue in poly( l -lysine) are estimated from the observed spacings. The number ratio of lysine residues to DPPA headgroups per unit area is greaterthan unity. Therefore, one DPPA headgroup interacts with more than one lysine residue electrostatically, i.e., the electric charge distributions in both the surface of a DPPA bilayer and the poly( l -lysine) β-sheet are incommensurate.

The phase transitions in fully hydrated dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and DPPC/water/ethanol phases have been studied by lowangle time-resolved x-ray diffraction under conditions similar to those employed in calorimetry (scan rates 0.05–0.5°C/min and uniform temperature throughout the samples). This approach provides more adequate characterization of the equilibrium transition pathways and allows for close correlations between structural and thermodynamic data. No coexistence of the ripp...

X-ray diffraction intensities for lamellar repeats, h = 1 to 7, and wide-angle x-ray scattering were measured for the gel phase of fully hydrated dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine. A hybrid model, which represents the electron density along the lamellar repeat direction as a continuous function composed of constant strips and superimposed Gaussians, is defined. The data were used to determine the best parameters in hybrid models and also in the older strip models. The most successful results were o...

Abstract The structure of the subgel phase of dipalmitoylphosphatidylglycerol (DPPG) has been analyzed by X-ray diffraction techniques. Diffraction recorded from highly oriented DPPG specimens in the subgel phase extends to 2-A resolution. There are sharp lamellar reflections on the meridian, and other reflections lie on a series of wide-angle lattice lines parallel to the meridian and crossing the equator in the range of 8-2 A. The wide-angle lattice lines consist of radially sharp reflections ...

Abstract Fluorescence polarization of 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene was used to study the effects of polylysine on the thermotropic behavior of dipalmitoylphosphatidylglycerol (DPPG) bilayers. The molecular weight of the polypeptide was shown to be a key parameter. Long polylysine ( mol. wt. ⩾ 60000 ) induces a lateral phase separation in three domains for lipid to lysyl residue ratios ( R i ) greater than unity and a shift of +4.0 Cdeg of the single gel-fluid transition is observed when there i...

The interaction of the basic polypeptide poly-L-lysine with the negatively charged phospholipid dipalmitoylphosphatidylglycerol was studied using Raman spectroscopy. The nature of the interaction appeared to depend on the molar ratio of the constituents. At up to one lysine group per lipid molecule, the bilayer was stabilized by the polypeptide that underwent a conformational transition toward an ordered alpha-helical structure, in which the electrostatic interactions were probably maximal. The ...

Based on their swelling in H2O lipids forming smectic phases may be grouped into two classes: (i) uncharged or isoelectric lipids which show no or limited swelling in H2O (the thickness of the water layer is less than or equal to 25 A); (ii) lipids with a net charge, which show continuous swelling. Up to a certain threshold concentration all the water is intercalated between the lipid bilayers: there is a single lamellar, swelling phase. Above this concentration two phases coexist: fully-hydrate...

Abstract Despite the development of advanced antibacterial biomedical materials, bacterial infection is still a serious problem for indwelling catheter because it usually induces severe complications. Hence, medical indwelling catheter with the capabilities of antibacterial activity, stability, biocompatibility is urgently needed.

Self-assembling polyplexes were prepared by varying the N/P ratio to obtain the optimum size, a net positive zeta potential and gel retardation. The stability in presence of DNase I and serum was assured using gel retardation assay. Their appreciable...

Abstract The chain packing in ordered phases of lipid bilayers can be classified according to wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WAXS). For triclinic (T‖) and monoclinic (M‖) packing in crystalline Lc phases, the wide-angle reflections index on an oblique lattice with spacings s10 ≠ s01 ≠ s11, and each chain has four nearest neighbours. For orthorhombic (O⊥) packing in Lc phases, and the rotationally symmetric equivalent in metastable low-temperature Lβ phases (mLβ), the wide-angle reflections index ...

Polyampholites are synthesized by the alkylation of poly-4-vinylpyridine with ω-bromocarboxylic acids, and their interaction with the negatively charged bilayer lipid vesicles (liposomes) is studied. In the above polymers, quaternized pyridine units are zwitterion (betaine) groups, in which cationic and anionic groups are linked by the -(CH2) n -bridges. Via the methods of fluorescence, laser scattering, and DSC, the length of the ethylene spacer in the betaine group is shown to control the abil...

The production of phosphatidic acid plays a crucial role in the activation of the ERK cascade. This role was linked to the binding of phosphatidate to a specific polybasic site within the kinase domain of Raf-1. Here we show that phosphatidate promotes ERK phosphorylation in intact cells but does not activate Raf in vitro. The kinase suppressor of Ras (KSR) contains a sequence homologous to the phosphatidate binding site of Raf-1. Direct binding of phosphatidate to synthetic peptides derived fro...

Abstract This paper presents DSC and NMR study of how the kerotolytic drug, salicylic acid (SA), affects the thermotropic and morphological behavior of a model membrane, dipalmitoyl phosphatidic acid (DPPA). The membrane–drug system has been studied in the multilamellar vesicular (MLV) and in the unilamellar vesicular (ULV) forms, for SA/DPPA molar ratios from 0 to 0.5. The mode of interaction of SA molecules with DPPA is similar in MLV and ULV. Chain-melting transition becomes sharper and shift...

Strong adhesion of highly active cells often nucleates focal adhesions, synapses, and related structures. Red cells lack such complex adhesion systems and are also nonmotile, but they are shown here to dynamically evolve complex spatial patterns beyond an electrostatic threshold for strong adhesion. Spreading of the cell onto a dense, homogeneous poly-L-lysine surface appears complete in <1 s with occasional blisters that form and dissipate on a similar timescale; distinct rippled or stippled pa...

The effects of six polycations were studied in vitro on red blood cells (RBC) and in vivo after intravenous administration. Hemagglutination and hemolysis depended not only on the molar mass and the concentration of these polycations, but also on their chemical nature. The hemagglutination and hemolysis induced by poly (l -lysine), diethylaminoethyldextran, poly(dimethyldiallylammonium) chloride and poly[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate] was low to moderate, whereas a severe hemolysis was ind...
