Artificial Planar Bilayer Lipid Membranes

A Survey
  • H. Ti Tien


About two decades ago, when a method for forming bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs) was discovered, the principal feature of the molecular architecture of biological membranes was being established as a bimolecular lipid leaflet (now called a lipid bilayer). First proposed by Gorter and Grendel in 1925, the existence of a lipid bilayer, which constitutes the key element of all biological membranes, has since been firmly established, largely through experiments with artificial BLMs (and liposomes).
