Abstract: We present a steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence emission spectra analysis of the membrane probe 1-myristoyl-2-[12-[(5-dimethylamino-1-naphthalenesulfonyl)amino]dodecanoyl]-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DANSYL) in 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DMPC) and cholesterol multi-lamellar vesicles (MLV) prepared by modified rapid solvent exchange. We report that the dose-dependent cholesterol-induced blue shifts in the steady-state fluorescence emission spectra observed in DMPC MLV are due to comp…
