Proton NMR studies of vesicles incorporating glycophorin.

The effects of incorporation of glycophorin, the major sialoglycoprotein of the human erythrocyte membrane, on the lipid of small vesicles have been studied using proton NMR and electron microscopy. In contrast to the incorporation of other peptides, the major effect is apparently the clustering of vesicles without fusion. The relative mobility of lipids of… CONTINUE READING
