Dynamics of membrane nanotubes coated with I-BAR

It is shown that the IM domain (also called I-BAR domain) from the protein ABBA, forms semi-flexible nanotubes protruding into Giant Unilamellar lipid Vesicles (GUVs) by simultaneous quantification of tube intensity and tubular shape.

NMR identification of a conserved Drp1 cardiolipin-binding motif essential for stress-induced mitochondrial fission

This work has uncovered a CL-binding motif (CBM) conserved between the Drp1 variable domain (VD) and the unrelated ADP/ATP carrier (AAC/ANT) that intercalates into the membrane core to effect specific CL interactions.

Lipid flip-flop and desorption from supported lipid bilayers is independent of curvature.

The results establish that the curvature of the LBL plays an insignificant role in lipid flip-flop and desorption in a highly curved lipid bilayer (NPSLBL) system.

Phosphatidylglycerol Flip-Flop Suppression due to Headgroup Charge Repulsion.

DSPG flip-flop dynamics and the activation barrier to exchange were found to be directly dependent on the amount of DSPG present in the bilayer, and charge repulsion between neighboring PG headgroups modulates the free energy barrier and subsequently, the rate of translocation.

Activation of Cytochrome C Peroxidase Function Through Coordinated Foldon Loop Dynamics upon Interaction with Anionic Lipids

These studies illuminate the interplay of protein and lipid dynamics in the creation of lipid peroxidase-active proteolipid complexes implicated in early stages of mitochondrial apoptosis, and correlate functional differences to structural and motional changes in membrane-associated cyt c.

Antagonism and synergy of single chain sphingolipids sphingosine and sphingosine-1-phosphate toward lipid bilayer properties. Consequences for their role as cell fate regulators.

The mutual interaction between Sph and S1P as a complex might be able to sequester both molecules in a biologically inactive form and therefore to promote a mutual regulation of their biological activities, depending on their ratio, consistent with the sphingolipid rheostat.



Membrane deformation under local pH gradient: mimicking mitochondrial cristae dynamics.

The results support the hypothesis of localized bioenergetic transduction and contribute to showing the inherent capacity of cristae morphology to become self-maintaining and to optimize the ATP synthesis.

It is suggested that an ATP-driven transport of aminoospholipids toward the inner leaflet could be the major cause of the phospholipid asymmetry in the erythrocyte membrane.

Vesicle budding induced by a pore-forming peptide.

We describe, in a system whose uniqueness is that the presence of pores allows the volume to vary as budding proceeds, how phase separation on the surface of spheres extrudes material in the process

On the mechanism of transbilayer transport of phosphatidylglycerol in response to transmembrane pH gradients.

It is shown that acyl chain saturation, chain length, and the presence of cholesterol modulate the rate constants for PG transport in a manner similar to that observed for small nonelectrolytes.
