The amount of swelling solution trapped when mixtures of ethanolamine and choline phosphoglycerides were dispersed in 0.145M glucose-C14 is dependent on, but not linearly related to, the amount of ethanolamine phosphoglyceride in the mixture. The leakage of swelling solution out of such myelinoid lipid-water dispersions was, however, linearly related to the proportion of ethanolamine phosphoglyceride.
