Monopalmitolein

9.7 MAG
1-(9Z-hexadecenoyl)-rac-glycerol (1 gram)

Host Lipid for protein crystallization in the Lipidic Cubic Phase (LCP) [1,2]. Used in combination with DSPG to create thermodynamically stable ultraswollen bicontinuous cubic phases with water channels five times larger than traditional lipidic mesophases, suitable for the crystallization of membrane proteins with large extracellular domains [1].
