Lipid–water interfaces are dielectric transition regions. Their local organizations are highly sophisticated. They are sensitive to electric field with dramatic consequences on the global membrane organization and function. The importance of using local values of parameters (e.g. dielectric constant) near water–solution interface due to hydration and different electrostatic effects is often neglected in the description of cellular functions. Structural changes in the lipid layer are induced by… CONTINUE READING
