Abstract

The effect(s) of bovine brain ganglioside-GM1 on the order of phosphatidylcholine-cholesterol membranes were studied using steady-state fluorescence polarization (FPZ) techniques with 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene (DPH) as the membrane probe. In the absence of cholesterol, GM1 (30 mol%) increases both membrane order and the phase transition temperature of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) membranes. However, in the presence of cholesterol (0.3 or 0.5, cholesterol/phospholipid molar ratio), GM1 significantly decreases steady-state anisotropy (rs) at temperatures above the Tm for the particular phospholipid. This effect may, in part relate to a dilution of membane cholesterol and is shared by bovine brain sphingomyelin (SM). GM1 (30 mol%) increases the order of 1-palmityl-2-oleyl-PC (POPC) membranes. However, in the presence of cholesterol (0.3 molar ratio) GM1 neither increases or decreases order. Thus, in cholesterol containing artificial membranes, the effect of GM1 depends on the phosphatidylcholine (PC) fatty acid composition and may not be evident from the effect of GM1 on pure PC membranes.
