1,2-Dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine or DPPE is a phospholipid component of the cell membrane. It is used in membrane models and is part of the glycerophosphoethanolamine family. DPPE has been shown to cause competitive hydrogen bonding of amine groups with phosphate/carbonyl groups or water. Additionally, DPPE has been studied along with cholesterol, showing cholesterol’s ability to induce DPPE monolayer condensation when calcium ions are present.
