Reconstitution and Microscopic Observation of G Protein Subunits on Giant Liposomes: Attempt to Construct a Cell Model with Functional Membrane Protein Components

Abstract

Giant liposomes are cell-size artificial vesicles with phospholipid bilayers. Here, in order to obtain giant liposomes containing membrane proteins (giant proteoliposomes), we have introduced a novel procedure using membrane fusion phenomena between liposomes and recombinant baculovirus. We tried to thereby reconstitute heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide… (More)
