|Membrane Protein Delivery into Giant Vesicles Using Charged‑Mediated Fusion|
Mulitple proteins embedded in small positively charged liposomes were delivered into the membranes of negatively charged giant unilamellar vesicles by charged mediated fusion. The process occurs within a few minutes and was verified by functional analysis of the proteins and fluorescence microscopy.
This work was carried out in the group of Christoph von Ballmoos.
