Abstract

The meso-tetra(α,α,α,α(o-pivalamidophenyl))porphinato iron-mono(1-lauryl-2-methylimidazole) complex embedded in the bilayer of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (liposomal heme) binds molecular oxygen reversibly at pH 7 and 37°C. Orientation of the iron porphyrin complex in the phospholipid bilayer was studied by electric birefringence and dichroism. It was observed that both the phospholipid bibilayer of liposome and the porphyrin plane are oriented nearly in parallel to the electric field. Therefore the angle between the porphyrin plane and the bilayer is considered to be practically small.
