The major lipid components of biological membranes can undergo many diverse and fascinating morphological rearrangements. Studies of these diverse phases and the manner in which they are formed tends to alter the properties of ordinary bilayer membranes. This book examines the structural and biological roles of lipids forming non-lamellar structures. Key Features * Characterization of non-lamellar structures * Protein activity and membrane properties * Analysis of membrane fusion * Affect of non-lamellar forming lipids on biological systemsThe theoretical models used in molecular dynamics simulations of the lateral diffusion in lipid bilayers do not take the effect on ... The ternary phase diagram of DPPCa€”cholesterola€”water was worked out as late as in 1990, using among otheranbsp;...
