Modulation of raft domains in a lipid bilayer by boundary-active curcumin

Author affiliations

Abstract

The function and mode of action of curcumin in modulating the formation of lipid raft domains were investigated by microscopic observation using model membranes. Curcumin induces fusion of lipid raft domains at extremely low concentrations through the alteration of the boundary between the ordered and disordered phases.
