  1. 1. Mesoporous supported lipid bilayers

    Author : Maria Claesson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : FRAP; Lipid bilayer; Mesoporous; AFM; Vesicle; Titania; Silica; QCM-D;

    Abstract : AbstractLipid bilayers are commonly used as simplified model systems of living cell membranes. They have shown to be important components in the development of biosensing devices where the bilayer acts as a host for transmembrane proteins, such as ion channels, that are utilized as sensing elements.

  2. 2. Vesicle transport in chloroplasts with emphasis on Rab proteins

    Author : Mohamed Alezzawi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : chloroplast; vesicle; transport; Arabidopsis; Rab; lipid; clathrin; protein; COPI; COPII;

    Abstract : Chloroplasts perform photosynthesis using PSI and PSII during its light-dependent phase. Inside the chloroplast there is a membrane called thylakoid. The thylakoid membranes are an internal system of interconnected membranes that carry out the light reactions of photosynthesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lipid Nanotube Networks: Shape Transitions and Insights into the Dynamics of Self-Organization

    Author : Tatsiana Lobovkina; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : circular nanotube; shape transition; enzymatic reaction; nanotube knot; self-organization; liposome; lipid nanotube; lipid vesicle; nanotube-vesicle network;

    Abstract : Nanotube-vesicle networks (NVNs) are simplified models of cell membrane tubular systems which are dynamic transportation routs for molecular cargoes in biological cells. The presented work describes dynamic properties of NVNs such as self-organization, shape and topology transformations; moreover, specific geometric properties of the networks are used for controlling enzymatic reactions.

  4. 4. Membrane-Polymer Interactions in Lipid Vesicles

    Author : Ilona Wegrzyn; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : lipid nanotube; liposome; multifunctional pipette; PNIPAAm; lipid bilayer; giant unilamellar vesicle;

    Abstract : Membrane related biological processes are commonly investigated in artificial biomimetic experimental systems. One of the most versatile models is based upon giant unilamellar phospholipid vesicles (liposomes), which are artificially generated spherical lipid structures in an aqueous environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biosensing and Protein Array Design using Lipid Assemblies

    Author : Charlotte Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : protein adsorption; protein arrays; lipid bilayer; SPR; scFv; lipid vesicle; DNA arrays; QCM-D;

    Abstract : Biomolecular sensing often includes immobilization of biomolecules, e.g. DNA, antibodies etc., to solid supports, where they act as selective recognition elements. READ MORE
