Revealing the Effects of Nanoscale Membrane Curvature on Lipid Mobility

The capabilities of varying experimental methods for revealing the effects of nanoscale curvature on single-molecule mobility and effective local membrane viscosity are described and a guideline for optimizing the experimental procedures is provided.

Nanoscale membrane curvature sorts lipid phases and alters lipid diffusion

It is reported that curvature can induce phase separation in otherwise homogeneous membranes and that the phase-curvature coupling has a direct implication on lipid mobility.

Coexisting lipid phases alter lipid dynamics and sort on nanoscale membrane curvature

The results demonstrate that curvature-induced membrane compositional heterogeneity can be achieved by collective behavior with lipid phase separation when single-molecule properties are insufficient, and support the hypothesis that the coupling of lipid phases and membrane shape may yield lateral membrane composition heterogeneities with functional consequences.

Structured clustering of the glycosphingolipid GM1 is required for membrane curvature induced by cholera toxin

Both the multiplicity and specific geometry of GM1 binding sites are necessary for the induction of membrane curvature, and this is expected to be a general rule of membrane behavior for all AB5 toxins and polyomaviruses that bind glycosphingolipids to invade host cells.

How Membrane Geometry Regulates Protein Sorting Independently of Mean Curvature

The results reveal that distinct membrane geometries have specific physicochemical properties and thus establish a ubiquitous mechanistic foundation for unravelling the conserved correlations between biological function and membrane polymorphism.

Interferometric fluorescent super-resolution microscopy resolves 3D cellular ultrastructure

iPALM closes the gap between electron tomography and light microscopy, enabling both molecular specification and resolution of cellular nanoarchitecture.

Super-resolution fluorescence imaging of organelles in live cells with photoswitchable membrane probes

This work identified photoswitchable membrane probes and obtained super-resolution fluorescence images of cellular membranes, and demonstrated the photoswitching capabilities of eight commonly used membrane probes, each specific to the plasma membrane, mitochondria, the endoplasmic recticulum (ER) or lysosomes.

Single Lipid Molecule Dynamics on Supported Lipid Bilayers with Membrane Curvature

The role of curvature in lipid sorting is tested using a supported lipid bilayer that was assembled over a nanopatterned surface to obtain regions of membrane curvature and the dynamics of single molecules of biotinylated DHPE molecules sense curvature using single particle tracking methods.

Membrane curvature at a glance

Some of the discoveries about the functions of membrane curvature, where in addition to providing cell or organelle shape, local curvature can affect processes like membrane scission and fusion as well as protein concentration and enzyme activation on membranes.

Ultra-high resolution imaging by fluorescence photoactivation localization microscopy.

A new method for fluorescence imaging has been developed that can obtain spatial distributions of large numbers of fluorescent molecules on length scales shorter than the classical diffraction limit, and suggests a means to address a significant number of biological questions that had previously been limited by microscope resolution.
