Domain formation in lipid bilayers probed by two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy.


Two-dimensional infrared (2D-IR) spectroscopy has been used to probe structure and dynamics in binary sphingomyelin/phospholipid liposomes. The liposomes consist of 1-palmitoyl-2-linoleyl phosphatidylcholine (PLPC) and sphingomyelin (SPM) in the ratio 1:1. The diagonal part of the 2D-IR spectra shows two bands which are due to amide I of SPM and to the… (More)
