Tear of lipid membranes by nanoparticles.
TLDR
It is shown that a lipid membrane can be torn by small enough nanoparticles, thus unveiling mechanisms for how lipid membranes can be compromised by tearing from nanoparticles and paving the way for a better assessment of nanoparticle toxicity.
Native silica nanoparticles are powerful membrane disruptors.
TLDR
Results indicate that a native-silica nanoparticle surface chemistry is a particularly strong membrane interaction motif, especially for the smaller nanospheres.
Electrophysiological characterization of membrane disruption by nanoparticles.
TLDR
A sensitive electrophysiological method is employed to assess the stability of protein-free membranes in the presence of silica nanospheres and suggests that nanoparticle-lipid interactions alone can compromise the barrier function of the plasma membrane.
Nanoparticles binding to lipid membranes: from vesicle-based gels to vesicle tubulation and destruction.
TLDR
This work shows that spherical nanoparticles binding to lipid-bilayer membrane vesicles results in a remarkably rich set of collective morphologies that are controllable via the particle binding energy, and separately studies cationic and anionic particles.
Modeling nanoparticle wrapping or translocation in bilayer membranes.
TLDR
By combining LIME, an intermediate resolution, implicit solvent model for phospholipids, with discontinuous molecular dynamics (DMD), this work is able to simulate the wrapping or embedding of nanoparticles by 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) bilayer membranes.
Incorporation of nanoparticles into polymersomes: size and concentration effects.
Because of the rapidly growing field of nanoparticles in therapeutic applications, understanding and controlling the interaction between nanoparticles and membranes is of great importance. While a
Mechanism of cellular uptake of genotoxic silica nanoparticles
TLDR
It is suggested that an adhesive interaction between silica nanoparticles and lipid membranes could cause passive cellular uptake of the particles.
Intracellular release of endocytosed nanoparticles upon a change of ligand-receptor interaction.
TLDR
A simulation study elucidates the physical mechanisms by which large spherical nanoparticles can shed their bilayer coating and finds that nanoparticle release can be readily achieved by a pH-induced lowering of the attraction between nanoparticle and membrane only if the nanoparticle is either very small or nonspherical.
Membrane-mimetic dendrimersomes engulf living bacteria via endocytosis.
TLDR
The engulfment of living bacteria into endosomes by cell-like dendrimersomes assembled from Janus dendromers is reported, driven by the adhesion of the bacterium to the dendedrimersome's membrane by ultra-weak interactions, comparable to those utilized by nature.
Biomimetic Curvature and Tension-Driven Membrane Fusion Induced by Silica Nanoparticles.
Fusion events in living cells are intricate phenomena that require the coordinate action of multicomponent protein complexes. However, simpler synthetic tools to control membrane fusion in artificial

The formation of supported lipid bilayers on silica nanoparticles revealed by cryoelectron microscopy.
TLDR
The nanoSLBs were found to follow faithfully the surface contours of the particles, information yet unavailable for SLB formation on planar solid substrates.
Examination of nonendocytotic bulk transport of nanoparticles across phospholipid membranes.
TLDR
The passive Brownian diffusion contribution was investigated using gold nanoparticles and mimetic biomembranes and the results show the transport rate to be zero; hence, a simple diffusive process of transmembrane transport is not supported.
Modeling the thermodynamics of the interaction of nanoparticles with cell membranes.
TLDR
A mesoscale thermodynamic model is proposed describing the transitions in membrane morphology observed after exposure to various types of nanoparticles and demonstrates under which conditions the particles can adsorb into the membrane or compromise the membrane integrity to result in the formation of nanosized holes.
Designing synthetic vesicles that engulf nanoscopic particles.
TLDR
It is found that, when the particle is wrapped by the raft, the line tension at the raft interface promotes fission, allowing the wrapped particle to detach from the larger membrane, and could be used to allow particles to cross a vesicle membrane.
Wide varieties of cationic nanoparticles induce defects in supported lipid bilayers.
TLDR
A wide variety of nanoparticles, including a cell penetrating peptide, a protein, polycationic polymers, and two inorganic particles, can induce disruption, including the formation of holes, membrane thinning, and/or membrane erosion, in supported lipid bilayers.
Lipid bilayer disruption by polycationic polymers: the roles of size and chemical functional group.
TLDR
A model that explains the influence of polymer particle size and surface chemistry on the interactions with lipid membranes was developed and is of general significance for understanding the physical and chemical properties of polycationic polymer interactions with membranes that lead to the transport of materials across cell membranes.
Fundamental mechanism of translocation across liquidlike membranes: toward control over nanoparticle behavior.
TLDR
The conditions in which thermal fluctuations in the membrane shape and the pore size can induce translocation of the particle can be determined and the probability of spontaneous translocation is predicted.
MEMBRANE MEDIATED ATTRACTION AND ORDERED AGGREGATION OF COLLOIDAL PARTICLES BOUND TO GIANT PHOSPHOLIPID VESICLES
TLDR
It is directly demonstrated that both chemically attached and electrostatically physisorbed particles can cause elastic deformations of flexible giant vesicles and experience membrane mediated attraction.
Detection of molecular interactions at membrane surfaces through colloid phase transitions
TLDR
It is demonstrated that colloidal phase transitions of membrane-coated silica beads provide a simple and label-free method for monitoring molecular interactions on lipid membrane surfaces and is expected that this approach, used here to probe with high sensitivity protein binding events at membrane surfaces, can be applied to study a broad range of cell membrane processes.
