Membrane shape equations.

Abstract

Shape equations allow the understanding of complex conformations of membranes of cells and cell organelles. We describe the theoretical approaches used to describe the elastic behaviour of lipid membranes, review the sets of equations proposed previously to analyse membrane mechanical equilibrium and discuss their limitations. We further present a… (More)
