General description

Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) is a phospholipid found in all living organisms. The phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) headgroup is a zwitterion, with a negatively charged phosphate group and positively charged free amine group. The egg yolk contains high levels of unsaturated PE which accounts to 83.10%.


Egg Trans PE is suitable for use:
  • in the preparation of zwitterionic liposome for binding assay
  • as a component in optimized theranostic nanoemulsion (NE) formulations
  • in the preparation of large unilamellar vesicles (LUVs) for detecting the leakage of intraliposomal carboxyfluorescein caused by anthraquinones

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) along with other phospholipids forms the backbone of biological membranes. PE is known to regulate autophagy. The autophagic membranes possesses PE with high degree of unsaturation. Egg yolk PE has high radical scavenging activity owing to antioxidant potential.

Flecainide, a class 1c antiarrhythmic, has emerged as an effective therapy in preventing arrhythmias in patients with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) refractory to β-adrenergic receptor blockade. It has been proposed that the clinical efficacy of flecainide in CPVT is...
