Contribution of the Hydration Force to Vesicle Adhesion on Titanium Oxide
Titanium oxide is a biocompatible material that supports vesicle adhesion. Depending on experimental parameters, adsorbed vesicles remain intact or rupture spontaneously. Vesicle rupture has been attributed to electrostatic ...
Controlling lipid membrane architecture for tunable nanoplasmonic biosensing
Tunable nanoplasmonic biosensing for lipid and protein applications is reported based on controlling lipid membrane architecture on surfaces. The interaction of a peptide with lipid membranes is highly sensitive to the ...
Rupture of Lipid Vesicles by a Broad-Spectrum Antiviral Peptide: Influence of Vesicle Size
An amphipathic α-helical (AH) peptide was recently discovered that can rupture the lipid envelope of many viruses including HIV, hepatitis C, dengue, and herpes simplex. Despite its broad-spectrum activity, the AH peptide ...
Rupture of zwitterionic lipid vesicles by an amphipathic, α-helical peptide: Indirect effects of sensor surface and implications for experimental analysis
Surface-based measurement approaches offer competitive advantages for studying lipid membranes and membrane-active drug candidates. Continued development of surface-based membrane assays for pharmaceutical and biotechnology ...
AH Peptide-Mediated Formation of Charged Planar Lipid Bilayers
Planar lipid bilayers on solid supports provide a controllable platform to mimic biological membranes. Adsorption and spontaneous rupture of vesicles is the most common method to form planar bilayers. While many substrates ...
