[Non-isothermal pattern of phase transition in vesicle membranes].


Phase transition of lipid molecules between liquid and crystalline states in the vesicle membrane has a non-isothermal pattern; it is spread in some temperature range, which depends on the vesicle size. With a change of phase transition the area which falls within a lipid molecule is changed. As a result elastic tensions appear in the membrane. They may… (More)
