General description

16:0 PEG550 PE is a polyethylene glycol (PEG) conjugated phospholipid. The molecular weight and exact mass are averages based on the polydispersity of PEG.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) conjugated phospholipids are known to protect the steric nature of liposomes. Hence, they are commonly recommended for use in liposome formulation. PEGylated lipids are used as drug carriers. Use of highly concentrated PEG-lipids makes the possibility of mixed micelles.
