General description

7-nitro-2-1,3-benzoxadiazol-4-yl (NBD) phosphatidylglycerol (PG) is a fluorescently labeled lipid where the NBD moiety is attached to the phosphatidylglycerol (PG). PG is abundant in the pulmonary surfactant. It is localized in the alveoli.


16:0-06:0 NBD PG is suitable for lipoteichoic acid synthase (eLtaS) enzyme assay.

Biochem/physiol Actions

7-nitro-2-1,3-benzoxadiazol-4-yl (NBD) fluorescent labeled lipids function as potential fluorophores for the study of biological and model membranes. 7-nitro-2-1,3-benzoxadiazol-4-yl (NBD) phosphatidylglycerol (PG) is useful in the analysis of enzymatic reactions. Phosphatidylglycerol (PG) controls inflammatory mechanism against viral infections.

To investigate the effect of fluorescent probe on the properties of membranes, we studied model membranes composed of 1,2- dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) and 1-palmitoyl 2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC) in the presence and absence of fluorescent probe. The morphology of giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs)...

Lipids that are labeled with the NBD (7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl) group are widely used as fluorescent analogues of native lipids in biological and model membranes to monitor a variety of processes. The NBD group of acyl chain labeled NBD lipids is known...

The probiotic Gram-positive bacterium Lactobacillus casei BL23 is naturally confronted with salt-stress habitats. It has been previously reported that growth in high-salt medium, containing 0.8 M NaCl, leads to modifications in the cell envelope of this bacterium. In this study...

Structural analogs of the bioactive lipid 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoglycerol were synthesized with a xylitol polar head group and both diacyl and diether radyl groups. Mass spectral characterization of xylitol phospholipids (PX) was carried out using collisional activation and high-resolution mass measurements of...

Lipoteichoic acid (LTA) is an important cell wall polymer in Gram-positive bacteria. The enzyme responsible for polyglycerolphosphate LTA synthesis is LtaS, first described in Staphylococcus aureus. Four LtaS orthologues, LtaS(BS) , YfnI, YqgS and YvgJ, are present in Bacillus subtilis....
