Phospholipid/cholesterol Model Membranes: Formation of Cholesterol Crystallites

Diana Bach et al. Biochim Biophys Acta.

Abstract

Experimental data that define conditions under which cholesterol crystallites form in cholesterol/phospholipid model membranes are reviewed. Structural features of the phospholipids that determine cholesterol crystallization include the length and degree of unsaturation of the acyl chains, the presence of charge on the headgroups and interheadgroup hydrogen bonds.
