CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -  Phospholipid bilayers serve as the framework in biological membranes in which other components are embedded. Fundamental not only in biology, lipid bilayers are also essential in applications such as biosensors and nanoreactors. Forming a fluid film like the skin of a soap bubble, lipid molecules are free to move around the membrane laterally -- like couples on a dance floor. At the same time, however, cellular proteins have to interact in a very controlled fashion...
