Calcium interaction with phospholipid membranes containing phosphatidic acid is studied by multifrequency phase fluorometry, using DPH as fluorescent molecule. DPH decay is analysed by a continuous distribution of lifetimes. The results suggest an increase of membrane heterogeneity at low calcium concentrations, without changes in the polarity of the environment surrounding the probe.
