Thermally-induced lateral assembly of a PEG-containing amphiphile triggering vesicle budding

Author affiliations

Abstract

A macrocyclic amphiphile consisting of a thermo-responsive octaethylene glycol chain with hydrophobic aromatic and aliphatic units undergoes lateral self-assembly in a liquid-disordered-state phospholipid bilayer membrane upon heating, which further leads to vesicle budding.
