General description

Phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) is an anionic phospholipid abundantly present in the eukaryotic cell. 10% of the total cellular lipid consists of phosphatidylserine. O‐phospho‐L‐serine is a heat‐stable substrate.


16:0 PS has been used in the assay to measure interactions between purified dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp1) and synthetic liposomes.

16:0 PS may be used in liposome flotation assay to measure its interactions between purified dynamin related protein 1 (Drp1) and as a component in the lipid mixtures to prepare lipid monolayers. It has also been used to prepare liposomes by the lipid film hydration method.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) participates in various intracellular signaling pathways. It also play a major role in apoptosis and blood clotting.
