The interaction of cationic liposomes with the skin-associated bacterium Staphylococcus epidermidis: effects of ionic strength and temperature.

Abstract

Cationic liposomes have been prepared from dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), cholesterol (Chol) and stearylamine (SA). These phospholipid vesicles were exposed to adsorbed biofilms of the skin-associated bacteria Staphylococcus epidermidis, to which they showed a strong affinity. The interaction (as assessed by the apparent monolayer coverage of the… (More)
