Dynamics of Model Membranes

Pp. 36-46 (11)

Francesca Natali and Marcus Trapp

Abstract

Biological membranes are complex multicomponent systems whose dynamics and structure provide their physiological function. Many parameters interplay to determine the membrane flexibility; among them, lipid composition, lipid-protein interaction, hydration, temperature etc.

We provide here a tentative overview of recent successful neutron scattering experiments on different oriented model membranes, with the aim to demonstrate the many unique advantages that elastic and quasi-elastic neutron scattering offer for the investigation of membrane dynamics.
