Descripción general

13:0 PC is ditridecanoyl phosphatidyl choline (DTPC). Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a phospholipid, present in endothelial cells, corneal epithelial cells, and fibroblast. Structurally, PC has a polar head consisting of choline and phosphate and two non-polar tails consisting of fatty acids. The polar head group is water soluble and the non-polar tails are water insoluble. Due to its amphiphilic properties, it is present in the cell membrane. In the human body, liver synthesizes PC. Dietary sources of PC are egg and soybeans.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC), a phospholipid carries a positively charged quaternary amine and a negatively charged phosphate in its headgroup. It can form strong bilayer and is an important component of mammalian membranes.
The list of Phosphatidylcholine products offered by Avanti is designed to provide compounds having a variety of physical properties. Products available include short chain (C3-C8 are water soluble and hygroscopic), saturated, multi-unsaturated and mixed acid PC′s. All of the products are purified by HPLC, and special precautions are taken to protect the products for oxidization and hydrolysis.


13:0 Phosphatidylcholine (PC) has been used as a lipid standard for mass spectrometry.
13:0 PC (1,2-ditridecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) may be used as a lipid standard for the quantification of phosphatidylcholines (PCs) by mass spectrometric analysis.

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) can serve as a surfactant in the mucus.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is the precursor for the triacylglycerol synthesis. The concentration of PC decreases owing to enhanced triacylglycerol production in the liver. Phosphatidylcholine may be a biomarker for the diagnosis of fatty liver. Its structure enables them to be used in food industry as emulsifiers.
