General description

Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) is a glycerophospholipid. This nonbilayer-forming phospholipid has a cone shape due to the presence of its head group.


08:0 PE (1,2-dioctanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine) may be used in the preparation of DOPC liposomes for pH sensor conjugation in imaging pH changes in living cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) plays a vital role in the structure and function of eukaryotic membranes. It serves as a lipid chaperon. It is known to participate in the initiation of autophagy. The hexagonal phase of PE is involved in membrane fusion events.
