Shape Transitions in Anisotropic Multicomponent Lipid Tubules.Atherton, Timothy J.
Ternary mixtures of saturated and unsaturated lipids together with cholesterol can be induced to phase separate by photo-peroxidation into lipid-ordered (lo) and lipid-disordered (ld) domains. Because these have different mechanical properties, the phase separation is accompanied by dramatic changes in morphology. This work considers a tubule composed of ld phase with lo phase inclusions that poss... read more
