LIPIDAT: AN WEB-BASED RELATIONAL DATABASE OF LIPID PHASE, TRANSITION
TYPES, TEMPERATURES, ENTHALPY CHANGES AND MOLECULAR STRUCTURES.
LIPIDAT is a database of all literature data on the mesomorphic and
polymorphic phases and phase transition temperatures and enthalpy
changes for synthetic and biologically-derived complex polar lipids.
The compilation includes all data for lipids in the dry and in the
partially and fully hydrated states. Also included is the effect on
these thermodynamic values of pH, and of salt and metal ion
concentration and other additives such as proteins, drugs, etc. The
experimental methods and conditions used in making the measurements are
reported. Bibliographic information includes complete literature
referencing and list of authors. The database contains in excess of
15,000 records. Each record has 29 information fields, one of which is
Supported by The National Science Foundation (BIR-9503868)
