The fusion and spreading of phospholipid bilayers on glass surfaces was investigated as a function of pH and ionic strength. Membrane fusion to the support was favorable at high ionic strength and low pH for vesicles containing a net negative charge; however, neutral and positively charged vesicles fused under all conditions attempted. This result suggests… CONTINUE READING
