HS-(CH2)m-COO-CH2-SH(OOC-(CH2)m-SH)-CH2-Phosphocholine (DT 004)


1,2-bis-(11-sulfanyloundecanoyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (m=10) and 1,2-bis-(l6-sulfanylohexadecanoyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (m=15) has a unique propensity to form “switchable” vesicles. As described in J. Am. Chem. Soc., 1985, 107, 42-47, this dithiol forms vesicles via oxidative polymerization using H2O2. The vesicles then fall apart by upon reductive depolymerization with dithiothreitol or 1-octanethiol. Well-sonicated and polymerized vesicles comprise few hundred of polymer chains each.
