cephalin

[′sef·ə·lən]
(biochemistry)
Any of several acidic phosphatides whose composition is similar to that of lecithin but having ethanolamine, serine, and inositol instead of choline; found in many living tissues, especially nervous tissue of the brain.

Combinations of both DPPC/DMPG and DPPC/PS have been found effective at targeting liposomes to macrophages, though DPPC/DMPG were found more immunogenic than liposomes with DPPC/palmitoyl phosphatidylethanolamine (DPPE) or DPPC/PS.
Since the presented labeling procedure utilizes the primary amino groups of the phosphatidylethanolamine, we used DOPE and DOPC containing liposomes to model the virosomes.

[98] showed that reduction in the molar ratio of phosphatidylcholine to phosphatidylethanolamine resulted in impairment of membrane integrity, development of steatohepatitis, and hepatic failure.
Moreover choline and DHA are related by the influence of phosphatidylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase (PEMT) that catalyzes the biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine [PtdCho] from phosphatidylethanolamine which is enriched in long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid and docosahexaenoic acid [12, 13].
