A fifteen-components model membrane that reflected the 80 % of phospholipids present in Insulin Secretory Granules was obtained and thermodynamic exploitation was performed, through micro-DSC, in order to assess the synergic contributions to the stability of a mixed complex system very close to real membranes. Simpler systems were also stepwise investigated, to complete a previous preliminary study and to highlight a hierarchy of interactions that can be now summarized as phospholipid tail unsaturation > phospholipid tail length > phospholipid headgroup > membrane curvature. In particular, Small Unilamellar Vesicles (SUVs) that consisted in phospholipids with different headgroups (choline, ethanolamine and serine), was step by step considered, following inclusion of sphingomyelins and lysophosphatidylcholines together with a more complete fatty acids distribution characterizing the phospholipid bilayer of the Insulin Secretory Granules. The inclusion of cholesterol was finally considered and the influence of three FFAs (stearic, oleic and elaidic acids) was investigated in comparison with simpler systems, highlighting the magnitude of the effects on such a detailed membrane in the frame of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus alterations.
