General description

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.
1,2-dihexadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) is synthesized from unsaturated phosphatidylcholine (PC) by direct de novo synthesis via α1,2-dipalmitoyl diacylglycerol intermediate. The enzyme cholinephosphotransferase catalyzes the conversion of 1,2-dipalmitoyl diacylglycerol to DPPC. Synthesis of DPPC also occurs via remodeling pathway involving deacylation of unsaturated PC.

Application

16:0 PC (DPPC) has been used in the generation of thymoquinone (TQ) liposomes, gold nanorods and calcium chloride encapsulated liposomes and bilayers for biophysical studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

1,2-dihexadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) is a surfactant and reduces surface tension. It is used in combination with 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC) for lipid bilayer generation. DPPC alone and in combination with other phospholipid is effective in drug encapsulation and delivery.
