It was observed recently that nonionic surfactant octaethyleneglycol dodecylether (Cl2E8) decreases threshold for irreversible electroporation in membrane bilayers. In accordance, it is shown theoretically in this work that anisotropic C12E8 membrane inclusions may stabilize circular hole in a flat membrane segment.

Stable tubular microexovesicles of the erythrocyte membrane induced by dimeric amphiphiles.

It is shown explicitly that the tubular shape of the microexovesicle is the extremal to the functional yielding the maximum of the average curvature deviator, which coincides with the minimum of the membrane free energy-thereby determining the stable tubularshape.
