  1. 1. Transport Modes in Nanotube-Vesicle Networks

    Author : Michal Tokarz; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diffusion; confinement; liposome; biomimetic; micromanipulation; Vesicle; electrophoresis; network; nanotube; transport;

    Abstract : Methods for construction of surface-immobilized microscopic networks of phospholipid bilayer vesicles (3-50 µm in diameter) interconnected by lipid tubes (30-150 nm in radius), have previously been developed. The networks have controlled connectivity and are well-defined with regard to container size, content, angle between nanotube extensions, and nanotube length. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interaction of Calcium Ions with Lipid Membranes

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Baharan Ali Doosti; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phospholipid bilayer membrane; membrane dynamics; micromanipulation; calcium ions; cell migration.; membrane nanotube; membrane tubular protrusions; calcium ion concentration gradient; membrane bending; giant unilamellar vesicle;

    Abstract : Bilayer membranes enclose and shield the biological cell and its inner compartments, as well as the tubular networks that exist within and between the cells. Due to their fluidic nature, the membranes are incredibly dynamic and flexible, which allows them to bend, reshape and fuse in response to mechanical and chemical stimuli within their natural microenvironments.

  3. 3. Lipid Vesicle Fusion: Investigation, Generation and Manipulation of Cell-Membrane Mimics

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Lisa Simonsson; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diffusion; spreading lipid bilayers; cell mimic; micromanipulation; lipid bilayer; microfluidics; site-specificity; DNA; membrane-receptor interactions; total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy; model system; self-assembly; TIRF microscopy; FRET; exocytosis; vesicles; fluorescence resonance energy transfer; biomembranes; amperometry; membrane fusion;

    Abstract : Membrane fusion is essential for nerve-cell communication, for protein transport between cell organelles and the cell-membrane and for enabling the merger between virus and host membranes during virus infection. In this work, cell-membrane mimics were constructed and evaluated as models for studies of the membrane-fusion process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reaction and Diffusion Phenomena in Biomimetic Nanoscale Reactors and Networks

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Kristin Sott; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; artificial cell; restricted geometries.; enzymatic reactions; micromanipulation; biomimetic; nanotubes; diffusion; Vesicles; networks; liposomes;

    Abstract : Methods for construction of geometrically complex, fully connected surface-immobilized microscopic networks of phospholipid bilayer vesicles (1-50 µm in diameter) interconnected by lipid nanotubes (100-300 nm in diameter), have been developed. The networks have controlled connectivity and are well-defined with regard to the container size, content, angle between nanotube extensions, and nanotube length. READ MORE

  5. 5. Piezoactuators for Miniature Robots

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Urban Simu; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; English; engelska;

    Abstract : Challenges in the realisation of a miniature robot are both to handle the complexity of such a system, and to cope with effects of the actual reduction in physical size of all the parts. In particular, the mechanisms for locomotion have to be analysed. READ MORE
