POPC is typically considered one of the model lipids for biophysical experiments. The fatty acid composition, i.e., saturated chain in the sn-1 position and unsaturated chain in the sn-2 position, mimics mammalian phospholipid composition. Since the major constituent in Egg PC is 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl PC, POPC is an excellent synthetic substitute for EPC.
16:0-18:1 PC has been used in the preparation of liposomes for the muramyl tripeptide encapsulation. It has also been used in the preparation of membrane scaffold protein 1 nanodisc. 16:0-18:1 PC may be used in the synthesis of discoidal reconstituted high-density lipoproteins.
1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC)or 16:0-18:1 PC plays an important role as a lung surfactant and reduces surface tension. POPC mimics natural cell membrane and may be useful for unsaturated lipids oxidation studies. Its interaction with ozone leads to oxidative decomposition at the oleoyl strand C-C moiety.
