Rhythmic pore dynamics in a shrinking lipid vesicle.


The rhythmic motion of membrane pore behavior under nonequilibrium conditions was studied. Application of the surfactant triton X-100 (TX-100) caused lipid vesicles to exhibit two types of shrinking dynamics with pore generation, which depended on both the size of the vesicles and the concentration of added TX-100. Small vesicles and the addition of a low… (More)
