General description

Phosphatidylglycerol (PG) is an anionic phospholipid, constituting 20−25% in E. coli membranes. Nitrobenzoxadiazole phosphoglycerol (NBD PG) is a fluorescently labeled phospholipid with 7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl (NBD) attached to the fatty acid chain of the phosphatidylglycerol.


18:1-06:0 NBD PG may be used in the determination of phosphatidylglycerol distribution across the bilayer of the membrane and to measure the rate constant for transbilayer movement of lipid molecules by preparing giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phosphatidylglycerol is involved in the biosynthesis of cardiolipin. It also contributes to the photosynthetic activity by maintaining the structural photosynthetic apparatus.
