Competitive effect of vitamin D-2 and Ca2+ on phospholipid model membranes: an FTIR study

2003-04-01
Toyran, N
Severcan, Feride
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 in both phases. The addition of vitamin D-2 into DPPC liposomes containing Ca2+, decreases the effect of Ca2+ at all the functional groups under investigation. Similarly, the effect of vitamin D-2 also decreases in the presence of Ca2+. This behavior is dominant at high Ca2+ concentrations. Our results show how simultaneous presence of vitamin D-2 and Ca2+ alter the behavior of each other, which is reflected as a decrease in the interactions between the ions and vitamin D-2 within the membrane.

Infrared Spectroscopic Studies on the Dipalmitoyl Phosphatidylcholine Bilayer Interactions with Calcium Phosphate: Effect of Vitamin D2
Toyran, Neslihan; Severcan, Feride (Hindawi Limited, 2002)
In the present work, the interaction of calcium-phosphate with DPPC (dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine) model membranes has been studied in the presence and absence of vitamin D<jats:sub>2</jats:sub>by using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Calcium and phosphorus are the most abundant elements in the body. They combine in the form of calcium phosphate salt, called hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite is the major structural component of the bone. Calcium phosphate assists with the digestion and absor...
Concentration dependent different action of progesterone on the order, dynamics and hydration states of the head group of dipalmitoyl-phosphatidylcholine membrane
Korkmaz, Filiz; Kirbiyik, Halil; Severcan, Feride (Hindawi Limited, 2005)
Interactions of progesterone with zwitterionic dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) multilamellar liposomes (MLVs) were investigated as a function of progesterone concentration at selected temperatures monitoring both the gel and liquid crystalline phase, by using Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). It has been show that the effect of progesterone on membrane dynamics is dependent on progesterone concentration. At 1 mol%, which is close to physiological level, progesterone behaves differently....
Tamoxifen-model membrane interactions: An FT-IR study
Boyar, H; Severcan, Feride (1997-06-01)
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 i...

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...
Melatonin strongly interacts with zwitterionic model membranes - evidence from Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry
Severcan, Feride; Sahin, I; Kazanci, N (2005-03-01)
Interactions of melatonin with zwitterionic dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) multilamellar liposomes (MLVs) were investigated as a function of temperature and melatonin concentration (1-30 mol%) by using two noninvasive techniques, namely Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The investigation of the C-H, C=O, and PO2- antisymmetric double stretching modes in FTIR spectra and DSC studies reveal that melatonin changes the physical properties of the ...
