Enzyme-catalyzed hydrolysis of the supported phospholipid bilayers studied by atomic force microscopy.

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is employed to reveal the morphological changes of the supported phospholipid bilayers hydrolyzed by a phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) enzyme in a buffer solution at room temperature. Based on the high catalytic selectivity of PLA(2) toward l-enantiomer phospholipids, five kinds of supported bilayers made of l- and D… CONTINUE READING
