Interactions of a bacterial biosurfactant trehalose lipid with phosphatidylserine membranes.

Abstract

Trehalose lipids are biosurfactants produced by rhodococci that, in addition to their well known potential industrial and environmental uses, are gaining interest in their use as therapeutic agents. The study of the interaction of biosurfactants with membranes is important in order to understand the molecular mechanism of their biological actions. In this… (More)
