The fluidity of the lipids in the membrane of Sindbis virus was studied by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. The lipids in the viral membrane are noticeably less fluid than the lipids in the membrane of the cells in which the virus was grown. This difference in fluidity is not due simply to differences in lipid composition but instead appears to… CONTINUE READING
