(GPA) e\' definito anche come: diacetyl glycerophophatidic acid, vedi sotto
Phospholipids are widely distributed in cellular membranes. Phosphoglycerides typically
contain two fatty acids esterified to the glycerol with a phosphate group at position 3 and are classified by
the polar head group linked to the phosphate: phosphatidyl ethanolamine (GPE), choline (GPC), serine
(GPS), glycerol (GPG), and inositol (GPI), all by an ester linkage, or phosphatidic acid (GPA), none.

Owing to the large size of the phosphoglyceride anions, the anion
of diacetyl glycerophophatidic (GPA) acid was selected for calculate of the potential-energy surface (PES).
