The effect of detergents on giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) composed of phosphatidylcholine, sphingomyelin and cholesterol and containing liquid-ordered phase (l(o)) domains was investigated. Such domains have been used as models for the lipid rafts present in biological membranes. The studied detergents included lyso-phosphatidylcholine, the product of(More)
The rise in rates of infection in adults over the age of 60 is accompanied by a decreased ability of older adults to make specific immune responses after immunization with a variety of specific antigens (Ag). This investigation delineates age-related changes in Ag-specific humoral immunity, comparing adults over age 60 to young adults aged 18-40, using(More)
In a previous work, we have shown that a spatially localized transmembrane pH gradient, produced by acid micro-injection near the external side of cardiolipin-containing giant unilamellar vesicles, leads to the formation of tubules that retract after the dissipation of this gradient. These tubules have morphologies similar to mitochondrial cristae. The(More)
