Possible Interaction: Phospholipids and Squalamine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Squalamine , an aminosterol antibiotic isolated from the dogfish shark, creates relatively large defects in phospholipid bilayers , allowing the unrestricted translocation of small molecules across these compromised membranes (B.S. Selinsky, Z. Zhou, K.G. Fotjik, S. R. Jones, N.R. Dollahon, A.E. Shinnar, Biochim.

Squalamine decreases the size of vesicles containing anionic phospholipid at a lower squalamine/lipid molar ratio than pure PC LUVs.
We suggest that squalamine complexes with phospholipid to form a discrete structure within the bilayers of LUVs, resulting in the transient leakage of small encapsulated molecules.
