On domain structure and local curvature in lipid bilayers and biological membranes.


The lateral lipid organization and the local surface curvature in small and giant bilayer vesicles of binary lipid mixtures were investigated. Mixtures of the following lipids are studied: Cholesterin, di-alcyl-lecithins, dioleyl-lecithin and di-alcyl-phosphatidic acid. The latter is con­ sidered as being representative of charged natural lipids (e .g… (More)
