Wrinkling and electroporation of giant vesicles in the gel phase
Electric pulses applied to fluid phospholipid vesicles deform them and can induce the formation of pores, which reseal after the end of the pulse. The mechanical and rheological properties of membranes in the gel phase differ significantly from those of fluid membranes, thus a difference in the vesicle behavior in electric fields is expected. However, studies addressing this problem are scarce. Here, we investigate the response of giant gel-phase vesicles to electric pulses and resolve thedoi:10.1039/b925929e fatcat:yyqwua4zwvh3nmrnpesqav2xre
