The Influence of Halogen Derivatives of Thyronine and Fluorescein on the Dipole Potential of Phospholipid Membranes

The Influence of Halogen Derivatives of Thyronine and Fluorescein on the Dipole Potential of... The effects of halogen derivatives of thyronine (tetraiodotironine and triiodothyronine) and fluorescein (Rose Bengal, phloxine B, erythrosin, eosin Y, and fluorescein) on the dipole potential of membranes composed of diphytanoylphosphocholine, diphytanoylphosphoserine, and diphytanoylphosphoethanolamine were investigated. A quantitative description of the modifying action of the agents was presented as characteristic parameters of the Langmuir adsorption isotherm: the maximum changes in the dipole potential of the membrane at an infinitely high concentration of modifiers and the desorption constant, characterizing their inverse affinities to the lipid phase. It was shown that the iodine-containing hormones led to a less significant reduction in the dipole potential of phospholipid membranes compared to the xanthene dyes, Rose Bengal, phloxine B, and erythrosin. The latter were characterized by the highest affinity for the lipid membranes compared to tetraiodotironine and triiodothyronine. It was found that the effect of iodine-containing hormones and xanthene dyes on the membrane dipole potential was caused by their uncharged and charged forms, respectively.
