Induced rupture of vesicles adsorbed on glass by pore formation at the surface-bilayer interface.

Abstract

Supported lipid bilayers (SLBs) are often formed by spontaneous vesicle rupture and fusion on a solid surface. A well-characterized rupture mechanism for isolated vesicles is pore nucleation and expansion in the solution-exposed nonadsorbed area. In contrast, pore formation in the adsorbed bilayer region has not been investigated to date. In this work, we… (More)
