Dynamic modulation of the glycosphingolipid content in supported lipid bilayers by glycolipid transfer protein.

Abstract

Supported lipid bilayers (SLBs) are popular models of cell membranes. Owing to the importance of glycosphingolipids (GSLs) in modulating structure and function of membranes and membrane proteins, methods to tune the GSL content in SLBs would be desirable. Glycolipid transfer protein (GLTP) can selectively transfer GSLs between membrane compartments. Using… (More)
