Anomalous diffusion in artificial lipid bilayers

Abstract:

Diffusion is a process essential to life. The way diffusion processes occur at, and within, the cell membrane is of particular importance for cellular signalling, transport and cellular integrity. However, within cell membranes, diffusion of lipids and proteins has been shown to be ‘anomalous’. In such cases the molecules do not conform to basic Brownian motion and instead show slower diffusion over long timescales. The cell exploits this to tightly control the movement of key molecules in...
