Multi-lamellar liposomes (MLLs), prepared by shearing a lamellar phase composed of lipids (phosphatidylcholine) and surfactant (Tween 80®), were designed to control their size, charge and elasticity, the key parameters known to influence liposomes penetration through skin. Their size was tuned...

In vitro characterization of membrane proteins requires experimental approaches providing mimics of the microenvironment that proteins encounter in native membranes. In this context, supported lipid bilayers provide a suitable platform to investigate membrane proteins by a broad range of surface-sensitive...

Alkanes are known to promote the fluid lamellar (Lα)-to-inverted hexagonal (HII) phase transition of different phospholipids. In this work, we studied the interaction of decane and tetradecane with self-assemblies formed of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-phosphoethanolamine (POPE), using sequential 2H and 31P solid-state NMR spectroscopy....
