General description

13:0 Diether PC (phosphocholine) is a class of glycerophospholipids that has two tridecane chains attached to the sn-1 and sn-2 positions of the glycerol backbone by ether bonds. It has choline as the alcohol moiety, attached to the phosphate group.


13:0 Diether PC or 1,2-di-O-tridecyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine is suitable for bicelle preparation and as an internal standard for lipid identification in tissue.

Biochem/physiol Actions

13:0 Diether PC (phosphocholine) is useful for bicelles preparation. Bicelles can be integrated into standard crystallization protocols and in contrast to micelles, bicelles maintain the protein in a more native bilayer environment allowing proteins to be captured in a more biologically relevant orientation.

Ether lipids, such as plasmalogens, are peroxisome-derived glycerophospholipids in which the hydrocarbon chain at the sn-1 position of the glycerol backbone is attached by an ether bond, as opposed to an ester bond in the more common diacyl phospholipids. This...
