Real-time monitoring of lipid transfer between vesicles and hybrid bilayers on Au nanoshells using surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS).

Abstract

To investigate the dynamics of exchange/transfer of lipids between membranes, we have studied the interaction of donor-deuterated DMPC vesicles with DMPC hybrid bilayers on Au nanoshells using SERS. Experimental data confirm partial lipid exchange/transfer in the outer leaflet of the hybrid bilayer. The kinetics of the exchange/transfer process follows a… (More)
