Incorporation of chemically modified (hydrophobized) ferritin in liposomal membranes: electron microscopic studies.


PMID 6517891

Abstract

The assembly of electron dense ferritin modified by acylation with steaorylchloride into small and large egg lecithin vesicles is reported. From electron micrographs conclusions are drawn: on the mode of ferritin incorporation in the lipid bilayer: Small liposomes seem to be only in superficial contact with the modified protein shell of the ferritin molecule whereas in the larger lipid vesicle type the incorporation is more integral.
