Use of Monolayer Techniques in Reconstitution of Biological Activities

  • Lawrence I. Rothfield
  • Victor A. Fried

Abstract

The use of lipid monolayers to study biological activities that take place in cellular membranes is based on the belief that the configuration of lipids is similar both in membranes and in monomolecular films at air-water interfaces.
