AbstractThe question of the existence of an immobilized class of lipid adjacent to membrane protein is of current interest in membrane biophysics. The evidence for this so-called "boudary layer lipid" is contradictory. The conflicting results may be partially reconciled as a consequence of (a) the experiments being performed with different proteins; (b) the different time domains of the various pectroscopic techniques employed; and (c) the presence of possibly perturbing molecules. The current study involved a vibrational spectroscopic determination of acyl chain order and mobility in dimysistoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC)-glycophorin complexes. Since Raman and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy monitor hydrocarbon chain coformation on a subpicosecond time scale without the use of probe molecules, the possible existence of an immobilized component can be examinded in a time domain faster than magnetic methods and without the potential for system perturbation caused by probes.
