General description

07:0 PC (DHPC)/1,2-diheptanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine is a phospholipid functions as a detergent. Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a strong bilayer-forming lipid. It the most common phospholipid in mammalian membranes. It is also an important component of the mucosal layer of the colon.

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.


06:0 PC (DHPC) is suitable for use:
• in developing a method for the separation of phospholipids by subcritical fluid chromatography
• in the preparation of bicelle samples
• in the preparation of lipid vesicles for guanosine-5′ -triphosphate (GTP) hydrolysis (GTPase) assays
• to establish a bicelle system for the characterization of hepatitis C virus (HCV) p7 channel
