Since several anti-cancer drugs interact with cell membrane lipids, the effects of anti-cancer dietary factors on liposomal membranes with different lipid composition were comparatively studied by measuring fluorescence polarization. Fluidity was imparted on both hydrophobic and hydrophilic regions of lipid bilayers by decreasing cholesterol and increasing… CONTINUE READING
