  • Giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) are well-known model systems, especially because they are easily observable using optical microscopy. [...] Key Result This is illustrated with the example of GUV electroformation from red blood cell ghosts in a physiologically pertinent buffer. GUVs obtained in this manner maintain the native membrane asymmetry, thereby validating the physiological relevance of GUV electroformation.Expand Abstract
