General description

10:0 PC (DDPC/1,2-didecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) is a zwitterionic and shorter-acyl chain phospholipid.
The list of Phosphatidylcholine products offered by Avanti is designed to provide compounds having a variety of physical properties. Products available include short chain (C3-C8 are water soluble and hygroscopic), saturated, multi-unsaturated and mixed acid PC′s. All of the products are purified by HPLC, and special precautions are taken to protect the products for oxidization and hydrolysis.


10:0 PC (DDPC/1,2-didecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) may be used:
  • as an internal standard to measure lipid metabolites for metabolic profiling using hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC)
  • to prepare lipid bilayer to reconstitute Vpu (membrane protein) and for biophysical studies
  • to prepare phospholipid membrane to study lipid-induced conformation of a 27-residue Cry4Ba-α7 peptide

Biochem/physiol Actions

High or low level of phosphatidylcholine (PC) can affect energy metabolism in several organelles.

Helix 7 in the Cry4Ba-pore-forming domain contains conserved Tyr(249) and Phe(264) that are crucially involved in mosquito-larvicidal activity. We have now characterized lipid-induced conformation of a 27-residue Cry4Ba-alpha7 peptide in phospholipid membranes using ATR-FTIR and hydrogen/deuterium (H(+)/D(+)) exchange experiments. ATR-FTIR...

In order to investigate the compensation mechanism of a trans-membrane helix in response to hydrophobic mismatch, the tilt and rotation angles of the trans-membrane helix of Vpu aligned in lipid bilayers of various thickness were determined using orientation-dependent frequencies obtained...

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) are the most abundant phospholipids in all mammalian cell membranes. In the 1950s, Eugene Kennedy and co-workers performed groundbreaking research that established the general outline of many of the pathways of phospholipid biosynthesis. In recent...
The critical micelle concentration (CMC) can be approximately defined as the lipid monomer concentration at which appreciable amounts (>5% of total) of micellar aggregates first begin to appear in the equilibrium: nM1<=>Mn
