Acetonitrile-Induced Destabilization in Liposomes
AbstractTo understand the behavior of cellular interfaces, it is important to clarify the effect of chemical compounds on artificial cell membranes. In this study, an aqueous acetonitrile solution was mixed with a suspension of lipid vesicles, and the changes in vesicle behavior arising as a result of acetonitrile application were observed. The fast Fourier transformations (FFTs) of the membrane waviness/crinkliness of the vesicles were carried out, and the membrane thermal fluctuations were analyzed. The experimental results show that the addition of acetonitrile molecules enhances the fluctuation of lipid membranes. In particular, the
