Interactions between grafted cationic dendrimers and anionic bilayer membranes.


We use polymer self-consistent field theory to study the physics involved in the permeation of charged dendrimer molecules across anionic lipid bilayer membranes. We specifically examine the influence of dendrimer shape deformations, neutral grafts, and pH conditions on the interactions between dendrimers and membranes. Our results indicate that the ability… (More)
