Effect of progesterone on DPPC membrane: Evidence for lateral phase separation and inverse action in lipid dynamics

2005-08-15
Korkmaz, F
Severcan, Feride
Interactions of progesterone with zwitterionic dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) triultilamellar liposomes were investigated as a function of temperature and progesterone concentration by using three non-invasive techniques namely Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, turbidity at 440 nm, and differential scanning calorimetry. The results reveal that progesterone changes the physical properties of DPPC bilayers by decreasing the main phase-transition temperature, abolishing the pre-transition, broadening the phase-transition profile, disordering the system both in gel and liquid crystalline phase, increasing the dynamics at low concentrations whereas stabilizing the membrane at high concentrations, and inducing phase separation. Progesterone does not change the hydration of the C=O groups, while it strengthens the hydrogen bonding between the PO (2) over bar groups of lipids and the water molecules around.

Effect of protein aggregation in the aqueous phase on the binding of membrane proteins to membranes
Doebler, R; Basaran, N; Goldston, H; Holloway, PW (Elsevier BV, 1999-02-01)
Analysis of the binding of hydrophobic peptides or proteins to membranes generally assumes that the solute is monomeric in both the aqueous phase and the membrane. Simulations were performed to examine the effect of solute self-association in the aqueous phase on the binding of monomeric solute to lipid vesicles. Aggregation lowered the initial concentration of monomeric solute, which was then maintained at a relatively constant value at the expense of the aggregated solute, as the lipid concentration was i...
The effect of cysteine-43 mutation on thermostability and kinetic properties of citrate synthase from Thermoplasma acidophilum
Kocabıyık, Semra; Russel, RJM; Danson, MJ; Hough, DW (Elsevier BV, 1996-07-05)
In this study, we have substituted serine-43 by cysteine in the recombinant citrate synthase from a moderately thermophilic Archaeon Thermoplasma acidophilum, for site-specific attachment of labels and have investigated the effects of this mutation on the biochemical properties and thermal stability of the enzyme. Both wild-type and the mutant enzymes were purified to homogenity using affinity chromatography on Matrex Gel Red A. The mutant Thermoplasma citrate synthase is very similar to wild-type citrate s...
Effect of gramicidin S on the dipalmitoylphosphatidyl-glycerol thermotropic phase transition in DPPG/GS systems: A mathematical approach
Stan, Cristina; Cristescu, C. P.; Severcan, Feride; Dorohoi, Dana (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
We present a mathematical approach to the experimental data recorded via Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy regarding the influence of the concentration of the antimicrobial peptide gramicidin S (GS) on the thermotropic phase transition of the dipalmitoylphosphatidyl-glycerol (DPPG) lipid bilayer membrane in DPPG/GS systems. The model is based on the influence of the GS concentration on the parameters of a nonlinear damped oscillator, which models the CH2 symmetric stretching band.
IR and turbidity studies of vitamin E-cholesterol-phospholipid membrane interactions
Severcan, Feride; Kazanci, Nadide; Baykal, Ülkü; Süzer, Şefik (Portland Press Ltd., 1995-8-1)
Binary and tertiary mixture of α-tocophenol, cholesterol and dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine in the form of multilamellar liposomes were investigated by Fourier Transform Infrared and visible spectroscopy. Results of the FTIR and turbidity experiments indicate that α T decreases or diminishes the effect of cholesterol on the frequency and the bandwidth of the C-H stretching, CH2 scissoring and C=O stretching bands in FTIR spectra and the turbidity measurements (recorded as absorbance values at 440 nm) in pho...
Interactions of tamoxifen with distearoyl phosphatidylcholine multilamellar vesicles: FTIR and DSC studies
Bilge, Duygu; ŞAHİN, İPEK; KAZANCI, NADİDE; Severcan, Feride (Elsevier BV, 2014-09-15)
Interactions of a non-steroidal antiestrogen drug, tamoxifen (TAM), with distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphatidylcholine (DSPC) multilamellar liposomes (MLVs) were investigated as a function of drug concentration (1-15 mol%) by using two noninvasive techniques, namely Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). FTIR spectroscopy results show that increasing TAM concentrations (except 1 mol%) increased the wavenumbers of the CH2 stretching modes, implying an disord...
