General description

Hydrogenated egg PC (HPC) is made up of saturated fatty acids.


Hydro Egg PC (hydrogenated egg lecithin) may be used:
  • in vesicles/liposomes for permeability studies to study the effect of MccJ25 on the permeability of phospholipid vesicles
  • to prepare small unilamellar vesicles (SUV) and multilamellar vesicles (MLV)
  • to prepare giant unilamellar vesicles
  • to prepare lipid emulsion to study the effects of phosphatidylcholine (PC) from different sources on intestinal absorption of cholesterol

Biochem/physiol Actions

Hydrogenated egg PC/ L-α-phosphatidylcholine (HPC) is a physiological surfactant.
