 Title    X-Ray and Fluorescence Studies on Phospholipid Bilayers. IX. Interactions with Pentachlorophenol  
 Abstract    Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is a widely used and highly toxic fungicide. Its toxicity is mainly expressed at the cell membrane level. It is, therefore, o f interest to test its ability to alter the lipid bilayer organization. The present study was performed by X-ray diffraction techniques on dimyristoylphosphatidylethanolam ine (D M PE) and dim yristoylphosphatidylcholine (D M P C) bilayers and by fluorescence on DM PC liposomes. These two phospholipids are re­ spectively found at the inner and outer monolayers o f human erythrocyte membranes. Each type o f phospholipid was made to interact with different concentrations o f the sodium form o f PCP in absence and in presence o f water. It was found that PCP significatively affected the structure o f both phospholipids, being the damage much higher in DM PC bilayers.
