Abstract / Description:Binding of PDC-109, the major protein of the bovine seminal plasma, to sperm plasma membrane results in an efflux of cholesterol and choline phospholipids, a necessary event before capacitation can occur. The selectivity of PDC-109 for different spin-labelled phospholipids and sterol probes in dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) host matrix has been characterized earlier by EPR spectroscopy [Ramakrishnan, M., Anbazhagan, V., Pratap, T.V., Marsh, D. and Swamy, M.J. (2001) Biophys. J. 81, 2215-2225]. In this report the effect of cholesterol on the interaction of PDC-109 with DMPC membranes has been investigated by spin-label EPR spectroscopy. The results indicate that the presence of cholesterol leads to an increased association of different phospholipid as well as sterol probes, thus modulating the interaction of PDC-109 with phospholipid membranes.
