1-<wbr></wbr>Stearoyl-<wbr></wbr>2-<wbr></wbr>myristoyl-<wbr></wbr><em>sn</em>-<wbr></wbr>glycero-<wbr></wbr>3-<wbr></wbr>PC (SMPC) belongs to the class of asymmetric phospholipids, which have two chains of unequal length attached to the glycerol backbone. SMPC is abundant in biological membranes where it can interdigitate with equal length (symmetric) acyl chain phospholipids in bilayer membranes to potentially minimize the hydrophobic mismatch between acyl chains.
