Latest Lipid bilayer Stories
Drug delivery inside the body is a complicated process.
A new transistor controlled by the molecule that powers biological cells is bringing humans and machines one-step closer to merging.
Thanks to an interdisciplinary team of researchers, scientists now have a more complete understanding of one of the human bodyâ€™s most vital structures: the red blood cell.
Much like a tightly wound drum, red blood cells are in perpetual vibration.
Trying to understand the complex workings of a biological cell by teasing out the function of every molecule within it is a daunting task.
Using an RNA-powered nanomotor, University of Cincinnati (UC) biomedical engineering researchers have successfully developed an artificial pore able to transmit nanoscale material through a membrane.
Italian and U.S. biologists this week report that a little-understood protein previously implicated in a rare genetic disorder plays an unexpected and critical role in building and maintaining healthy cells.
Applying biological molecules from cell membranes to the surfaces of artificial materials is opening peepholes on the very basics of cell-to-cell interaction.
By Anglin, Timothy C Conboy, John C ABSTRACT The dependence of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine (DPPC) flip-flop kinetics on the lateral membrane pressure in a phospholipid bilayer was investigated by sum- frequency vibrational spectroscopy.
By Churchward, Matthew A Rogasevskaia, Tatiana; Brandman, David M; Khosravani, Houman; Nava, Phillip; Atkinson, Jeffrey K; Coorssen, Jens R ABSTRACT The Ca^sup 2+^-triggered merger of two apposed membranes is the defining step of regulated exocytosis.
