18:1 Cy5 PE or 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine-N-(Cyanine 5), chloroform has been used:
  • as a standard for the estimation of absolute density of Cy5 labeled Trx-His6-NCav-CT on supported lipid bilayers (SLB)
  • in annexin-coated vesicle production
  • to label vesicle types in order to optically distinguish them from other vesicles and to initiate biochemical reactions in a cell-mimetic compartment

Biochem/physiol Actions

Fluorescent labelled lipids are generally useful in cell biology and biophysical studies. Cellular events involving lipids such as lipid domain generation, disaggregation and re-organization can be studied with fluorescent lipids. They are also useful in analyzing the physical properties of lipid bilayers.

Uptake of apoptotic cells (ACs) by dendritic cells (DCs) and induction of a tolerogenic DC phenotype is an important mechanism for establishing peripheral tolerance to self-antigens. The receptors involved and underlying signaling pathways are not fully understood. Here, we identify Dectin-1 as a...

Both the timing and kinetics of neurotransmitter release depend on the positioning of clustered Ca2+ channels in active zones to docked synaptic vesicles on presynaptic plasma membranes. However, how active zones form is not known. Here, we show that RIM...

Constructing higher-order vesicle assemblies has discipline-spanning potential from responsive soft-matter materials to artificial cell networks in synthetic biology. This potential is ultimately derived from the ability to compartmentalise and order chemical species in space. To unlock such applications, spatial organisation...

Cells dynamically regulate their membrane surface area during a variety of processes critical to their survival. Recent studies with model membranes have pointed to a general mechanism for surface area regulation under tension in which cell membranes unfold or take...

The role of fatty acid synthesis in endothelial cells (ECs) remains incompletely characterized. We report that fatty acid synthase knockdown (FASNKD) in ECs impedes vessel sprouting by reducing proliferation. Endothelial loss of FASN impaired angiogenesis in vivo, while FASN blockade reduced...
