The formation of helical tubular vesicles by binary monolayers containing a nickel-chelating lipid and phosphoinositides in the presence of basic polypeptides.

Abstract

Binary lipid monolayers consisting of equimolar proportions of a phosphoinositide and a nickel-chelating lipid formed helical tubular vesicular structures, which appeared to be induced and/or stabilized by myelin basic protein (MBP). Another basic polypeptide, poly-L-lysine, had a similar effect but not to as great a degree as MBP; the proteins thus… (More)
