Dr. Paul Cremer, Penn State, “Probing the Interactions of Ions and Small Molecules with Phospholipid Membrane
Abstract The interactions of ions and small molecules with lipid head groups depends intimately on the structure of the analytes and the chemical composition of the membrane. In this talk, it will be shown that these interactions can be facilely probed by fluorescence microscopy when using a pH sensitive probe. The ability of small organic...
