Dilauroylphosphatidylethanolamine (DPPE): DPPE, or dilauroylphosphatidylethanolamine, is a phospholipid belonging to the class of phosphatidylethanolamines (PEs). It consists of two lauric acid (16:0) chains esterified to the sn-1 and sn-2 positions of a glycerol backbone, with a phosphoethanolamine head group attached to the sn-3 position. DPPE is commonly used in biochemical and biophysical research, particularly in studies involving lipid bilayers, membrane structure, and lipid-protein interactions. Its ability to form lipid vesicles or liposomes makes it valuable in drug delivery systems and as model membranes for studying membrane properties.
