General description

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.


18:1 (Δ9-Cis) PC (DOPC) has been used in the preparation of planar supported lipid bilayer for fluorescence microscopy. It is also suitable for use in the preparation of protocells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

18:1 (Δ9-Cis) PC (DOPC) shows high resistance to the toxic effects of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).

Elucidating molecular mechanisms by which lipids regulate protein function within biological membranes is critical for understanding the many cellular processes. Recently, we have found that dimeric αβ-tubulin, a subunit of microtubules, regulates mitochondrial respiration by blocking the voltage-dependent anion channel
