The present paper describes the generation of a biomimetic model lipid membrane on bacterial surface (S-)layer which covered the entire surface of various sensors. The S-layer lattice allows one to be independent from the underlying solid material and provides a biological surface and anchoring structure for lipid membranes. S-layer proteins were chemically modified via binding of two amine-terminated phospholipids. Subsequently, a bimolecular lipid membrane anchored to the previously generated… CONTINUE READING
