Cell membranes have complex lipid compositions, including an asymmetric distribution of phospholipids between the opposing leaflets of the bilayer. Although it has been demonstrated that the lipid composition of the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane is sufficient for the formation of raft-like liquid-ordered (l(o)) phase domains, the influence that such domains may have on the lipids and proteins of the inner leaflet remains unknown. We used tethered polymer supports and a combined Langmuir… Expand
Transbilayer coupling of lipid dynamics.
TLDR
Results about the influence of acyl-chain length and saturation on the interleaflet coupling in asymmetric bilayers are reported, which emphasize the role of lipid clusters or domains that go beyond those of lipid rafts. Expand
Asymmetric bilayers mimicking membrane rafts prepared by lipid exchange: Nanoscale characterization using AFM-Force spectroscopy.
TLDR
This work combined AFM imaging and Force spectroscopy measurements to assess domain formation and to study the nanomechanical properties of asymmetric supported lipid bilayers (SLBs) mimicking membrane rafts to enhance the applicability of membrane models. Expand
Trans-monolayer coupling of fluid domains in lipid bilayers
Lipid membranes that exhibit fluid–fluid phase coexistence are widely studied as models for the physical state of lipids in raft-forming biomembranes. Yet, whereas model membranes are typicallyExpand
Interaction Forces between Lipid Rafts.
TLDR
These findings demonstrate that liquid-ordered membranes are stable to mechanical loading and not particularly sensitive to compositional variation. Expand

Membrane organization and lipid rafts.
TLDR
The emerging principles of membrane architecture are reviewed with special emphasis on lipid organization and domain formation, which combines the potential for sphingolipid-cholesterol self-assembly with protein specificity to focus and regulate membrane bioactivity. Expand
Coupling of cholesterol-rich lipid phases in asymmetric bilayers.
TLDR
It appears that the phase behavior of the inner leaflet mixtures is dominated by the intrinsic chain melting temperatures of the lipid components, rather than by their specific headgroup classes. Expand

Supported lipid bilayers as models for studying membrane domains.

Methods to produce asymmetric lipid bilayers with lipid compositions that mimic those of the extracellular and cytoplasmic leaflets of cell membranes and the functional reconstitution of membrane proteins into such systems are highlighted. Expand
Bilayer asymmetry influences integrin sequestering in raft-mimicking lipid mixtures.
TLDR
Comparison with previously reported integrin sequestering data in bilayer-spanning lo-ld phase separations demonstrates that bilayer asymmetry has a profound influence on αvβ3 and α5β1sequestering behavior. Expand

Lipid asymmetry in DLPC/DSPC-supported lipid bilayers: a combined AFM and fluorescence microscopy study.
TLDR
A combined atomic force microscopy and fluorescence microscopy study whereby three different states of transmembrane symmetry in phase-separated supported lipid bilayers formed by vesicle fusion are observed, finding that the lipid flip-flop event happens most frequently at the interface between symmetric and asymmetric DSPC domains. Expand
Cholesterol does not induce segregation of liquid-ordered domains in bilayers modeling the inner leaflet of the plasma membrane.
TLDR
It is suggested that factors extrinsic to the inner-monolayer lipids themselves (e.g., transbilayer penetration of long sphingolipid acyl chains) would be essential to confer a distinctive, more highly ordered organization to the cytoplasmic leaflet of "lipid raft" structures in animal cell membranes.

Role of cholesterol in the formation and nature of lipid rafts in planar and spherical model membranes.
TLDR
Fluorescence microscopy and fluorescence recovery after photobleaching are used to map the composition-dependence of l(d)/l(o) phase coexistence in planar lipid bilayers and reveal a percolation threshold, i.e., the point where rafts become connected and fluid domains disconnected. Expand
Lipid rafts reconstituted in model membranes.
TLDR
The notion that in biomembranes selected lipids could laterally aggregate to form more ordered, detergent-resistant lipid rafts into which glycosphingolipid- and cholesterol-rich lipid domains partition is strongly supported by this study. Expand
Tethered polymer-supported planar lipid bilayers for reconstitution of integral membrane proteins: silane-polyethyleneglycol-lipid as a cushion and covalent linker.
TLDR
A new tethered polymer-supported planar lipid bilayer system was developed, which permitted us to reconstitute integral membrane proteins in a laterally mobile form and a model for the interaction of these proteins with the underlying polymer is discussed. Expand
Membrane lateral mobility obstructed by polymer-tethered lipids studied at the single molecule level.
TLDR
It was found that TRITC-DHPE and W80i show normal diffusion at lower concentrations of tethered lipids and anomalous diffusion at higher ones, which may help improve the understanding of how lipid and proteins in biomembranes may be obstructed by very small obstacles comprising only one or very few molecules.

A technique based on fluorescence interference contrast (FLIC) microscopy to measure lipid asymmetry in supported bilayers and found that asymmetric LB/VF bilayers retained nearly 100% asymmetric label, with or without the use of a tethered polymer support. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that high-resolution fluorescence imaging using two dyes preferentially labelling different fluid phases directly provides a correlation between domain composition and local membrane curvature, which is able to provide experimental estimates of boundary tension between fluid bilayer domains.

Molecular packing defects at the phase transition are assumed to be responsible for the rapid transbilayer movement and the relevance of those defects for understanding of the activity of flippases is discussed. Expand

Cholesterol was shown to promote lipid segregation in dioleoyl-phosphatidylcholine-enriched, liquid-disordered, and sphingomyelin-en enriched, liquid -ordered phases and the lipid mobility in sphingomeelin- enriched regions significantly increased by increasing the cholesterol concentration, pinpoint the key role, played by cholesterol in tuning lipid dynamics in membranes.
