Results of a kinetic model of thermotropic L alpha----HII phase transitions are used to predict the types and order-of-magnitude rates of interactions between unilamellar vesicles that can occur by intermediates in the L alpha----HII phase transition. These interactions are: outer monolayer lipid exchange between vesicles; vesicle leakage subsequent to aggregation; and (only in systems with ratios of L alpha and HII phase structural dimensions in a certain range or with unusually large bilayer… CONTINUE READING
