We demonstrate a method of heterogeneous vesicle binding using membrane-anchored, single-stranded DNA that can be used over several orders of magnitude in vesicle size, as demonstrated for large 100 nm vesicles and giant vesicles several microns in diameter. The aggregation behavior is studied for a range of DNA surface concentrations and solution ionic strengths. Three analogous states of aggregation are observed on both vesicle size scales. We explain the existence of these three regimes by a… CONTINUE READING
