Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) on the unilamellar vesicle populations (diameter 500 Å and 1000 Å) was used to characterize lipid vesicles from dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) at three phases (gel, ripple, and liquid). Parameters of vesicle populations and internal structure of the DMPC bilayer were characterized on the basis of the Separated Form Factor (SFF) model. Vesicle shape changes from about spherical in the liquid phase to elliptical in the ripple and gel ones. It is true…

Sans Study of the Unilamellar DMPC Vesicles. the Fluctuation Model of Lipid Bilayer

On the basis of the separated form-factors model, parameters of the polydispersed unilamellar DMPC vesicle population are analyzed. The neutron scattering length density across the membrane is

In this work we return to the possible uses of small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) in the study of single membrane structure in water solutions at low membrane concentrations (i.e., in excess

Determination of bilayer thickness and lipid surface area in unilamellar dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles from small-angle neutron scattering curves: a comparison of evaluation methods

Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments were performed on unilamellar 1,2-dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles prepared in heavy water by extrusion through polycarbonate filters with 500 Å pores and it is shown that the results obtained are not sensitive to the vesicle form factor, nor to the evaluation method.

Model of separated form factors for unilamellar vesicles

Abstract.A new model of separated form factors is proposed for the evaluation of small-angle neutron scattering curves from large unilamellar vesicles. The validity of the model was checked by
