Effects of surface pressure and internal friction on the dynamics of shear-driven supported lipid bilayers.

Abstract

Supported lipid bilayers (SLBs) are one of the most common model systems for cell membrane studies. We have previously found that when applying a bulk flow of liquid above an SLB the lipid bilayer and its constituents move in the direction of the bulk flow in a rolling type of motion, with the lower monolayer being essentially stationary. In this study, a… (More)
