The effect of temperature on the nanomechanical response of supported lipid bilayers has been studied by force spectroscopy with atomic force microscopy. We have experimentally proved that the force needed to puncture the lipid bilayer (Fy) is temperature dependent. The quantitative measurement of the evolution of Fy with temperature has been related to the structural changes that the surface undergoes as observed through atomic force microscopy images. These studies were carried out with three… CONTINUE READING
