By using the combined approaches of microcalorimetric analysis and polarizing microscopy, the crystal-liquid crystal-isotropic melt phase transition of major phospholipids (phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine) and glycolipids (monogalactosyldiacylglycerol and digalactosyldiacylglycerol) isolated from marine seagrass Zostera marina were investigated. Here we discuss the results in view of the fatty acid structures of the lipids studied.
