Heads and tails: GPI glycolipid monolayers on the air/liquid interface are characterized by the ordering of entire molecules, as observed by grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction. Strong hydrogen bonding interactions are responsible for ordering of the head groups to form supercells. These forces are likely to be the key to the interactions of GPI-anchored proteins and/or GPIs in cell membranes.
