Liposomes have numerous uses as biochemical and biophysical tools: as vehicles for the delivery of both water and of oil-soluble materials to the cell; as immunological adjuvants; as substrates for the study of membrane properties such as rotational or translational diffusion in the plane of the membrane; and as intermediates in the construction of bilayers large enough for the study of electrical properties of membranes.

Membrane Permeability: 100 Years Since Ernest Overton, Volume

by Liposomes

Membrane permeability is fundamental to all cell biology and subcellular biology. The cell exists as a closed unit. Import and export depend upon a number of sophisticated mechanisms, such as active transport, endocytosis, exocytosis, and passive diffusion. These systems are critical for the normal housekeeping physiological functions. However, access to the cell is also taken [...]
