Conformation of a charged vesicle.


We report on the first systematic study of vesicle conformational change caused by Coulomb interaction between surface charges on a lipid vesicle. The equilibrium configuration of a charged vesicle is found, as the result of the competition between the local bending elastic energy and the long-range electrostatic interaction within the membrane where the… (More)
