1,2-Dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DMPC) is a phospholipid found in eukaryotes, but not most bacteria. It is used in lipid bilayer studies to analyze organelle and cell membranes. It’s also been used to study molecules in membranes, such as the interaction between DMPC and proteins in lab-constructed dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles.
