General description

1,2-dihexadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) is synthesized from unsaturated phosphatidylcholine (PC) by direct de novo synthesis via α1,2-dipalmitoyl diacylglycerol intermediate. The enzyme cholinephosphotransferase catalyzes the conversion of 1,2-dipalmitoyl diacylglycerol to DPPC. Synthesis of DPPC also occurs via remodeling pathway involving deacylation of unsaturated PC.
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.

Application

16:0 PC (DPPC) has been used in the generation of thymoquinone (TQ) liposomes, gold nanorods and calcium chloride encapsulated liposomes and bilayers for biophysical studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

1,2-dihexadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) is a surfactant and reduces surface tension. It is used in combination with 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC) for lipid bilayer generation. DPPC alone and in combination with other phospholipid is effective in drug encapsulation and delivery.
