Structural and functional consequences of long-chain polyunsaturation in biomembranes

Abstract:

Biophysical studies have enabled some general principles to be deduced about the structural and dynamic consequences of lipid unsaturation in biomembranes. Since membrane function, either protein-mediated or occurring passively through the lipid bilayer, has been shown to be coupled closely to the lipid composition, any diseases or dietary conditions which cause alterations in the lipid chemistry will be reflected in functional changes of the membrane. Here, the relationship between lipid uns...
