In contrast to the diffusion of membrane components in artificial lipid bilayers, diffusion in cells is both slower and non-ergodic. The physical origins of such anomalous diffusion are poorly understood, though cytoskeletal-membrane interactions and nanoscopic heterogeneity in the membrane have both been suggested to play an important role. There remains however a lack of controlled model systems on which to test these potential causes. Here we present a model system for reproducing this… CONTINUE READING
