Spontaneous formation of long-range (millimeters) membrane-bound nanotubules from surface-immobilized liposomes is possible by application of modest electric fields (2 -20 V/cm), providing a novel fabrication strategy for these hollow cylindrical structures. Stable tubes generally aligned with the applied electric field were created from liposomes prepared… CONTINUE READING
