Tamoxifen-model membrane interactions: An FT-IR study

Boyar, H

The temperature- and concentration-induced effects of tamoxifen (TAM) on dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) model membranes were investigated by the Fourier transform-infrared (FT IR) spectroscopic technique. An investigation of the C-H stretching region and the C=0 mode reveals that the inclusion of TAM changes the physical properties of the DPPC multibilayers by (i) shifting the main phase transition to lower temperatures; (ii) broadening the transition profile slightly; (iii) disordering the system in the gel and in the liquid crystalline phases; (iv) increasing the dynamics in the gel phase and decreasing the dynamics of the acyl chains in the liquid crystalline phase; (v) increasing the mobility of the terminal methyl group region of the bilayer in the gel phase and decreasing it in the liquid crystalline phase; (vi) increasing the frequency of the C=0 stretching mode both in the gel and in the liquid crystalline phases, i.e. non-bonding with carbonyl groups.

Boyar, H; Severcan, Feride (1997-06-01)
Interactions of 17 beta-oestradiol (E2) with dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) multilamellar liposomes were investigated by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy as a function of temperature. The investigation of the C-H stretching region and the C=0 mode reveals that E2 changes the physical properties of the DPPC bilayers by decreasing the main phase transition temperature, diminishing the pretransition, slightly disordering the system in the gel and in the liquid crystalline phase, increasin...
PEM fuel cell short stack performances of silica doped nanocomposite membranes
DEVRİM, YILSER; Devrim, Huseyin (2015-06-29)
In this study, an air-cooled Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) short stack with Nafion/Silica nanocomposite membrane was designed and fabricated for net 100 W net power output to improve the stack performance at low relative humidity conditions. Composite membrane was prepared by solution casting method. Gas Diffusion Electrodes (GDE's) were produced by ultrasonic spray coating technique. Short stack design was based on electrochemical data obtained at 0.60 V was 0.45 A/cm(2) from performance tests...
Competitive effect of vitamin D-2 and Ca2+ on phospholipid model membranes: an FTIR study
Toyran, N; Severcan, Feride (2003-04-01)
The interaction of Ca2+, with dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) model membranes was studied in the presence and absence of vitamin D-2 by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Addition of vitamin D-2 and/or Ca2+ into pure DPPC liposomes shifts the phase transition to higher temperature, orders and decreases the dynamics of the acyl chains in both phases and does not induce hydrogen bond formation in the interfacial region. Moreover, the dynamics of the head group of the phospholipid decreases ...
Melatonin induces opposite effects on order and dynamics of anionic DPPG model membranes
Sahin, Ipek; Severcan, Feride; Kazanci, Nadide (Elsevier BV, 2007-05-27)
The temperature and concentration induced effects of melatonin on anionic dipalmitoyl phosphatidylglycerol (DPPG) multilamellar liposomes (MLVs) were investigated by using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results show that melatonin does not perturb the phase transition profile, while a decrease in the main transition temperature (T-m) is noticed at high melatonin concentrations (15, 24 and 30 mol Low concentrations of melatonin (3, 6 and 9 mol ...
Tamoxifen Increases Membrane Fluidity at High Concentrations
Severcan, Feride; Kazanci, Nadide; Zorlu, Faruk (Portland Press Ltd., 2000-6-1)
There are contradictory results in the literature relating to the effect of tamoxifen on membrane fluidity. The present work investigates the effect of tamoxifen on membrane dynamics to find out whether the concentration of tamoxifen can be one of the factors in this discrepancy. Turbidity (absorbance at 440 nm) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic studies reveal that tamoxifen causes opposite effects on membrane fluidity at low (1 mol.%) and high (30 mol.%) tamoxifen concentrations. Low tamoxifen c...
