Abstract

Protein kinase C (PKC) and CTP:phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase (CT) are two examples of enzymes that are regulated by reversible binding to membranes, and this binding is influenced by membrane physical properties. CT activation by oxidized phosphatidylcholines was recently demonstrated and was linked to the acyl chain disordering effect of the oxidized species (Biochemistry 38, 15606). In this paper, we compare the responses of PKC and CT to an oxidized PC, and investigate the physical properties of lipid bilayers that modulate the activity of these enzymes. We show that 1-palmitoyl, 2-(11,15 dihydroxy) eicosatrienoyl PC (diOH-PAPC) caused less of an increase in the temperature of the lamellar to hexagonal II transition (T
