The main objective of this lecture is to discuss the role of lipid-bilayer elasticity (1) for the self-organization of lipid/protein-bilayers (2) for the stabilization of domain structures and shapes of cell membranes and (3) for the control of shape transitions (e.g. bud- and pit-formation) and shape instabilities (vesicle fission). It is demonstrated that many complex shape transitions of cell membranes can be mimicked by single lipid bilayer vesicles by simply varying the area-to-volume… CONTINUE READING
