Activity of Keggin and Dawson polyoxometalates toward model cell membrane

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present direct information showing that polyoxometalates (POMs) show destructive activity toward the model cell membrane, via the rapid adsorption of POMs on the vesicle surface. The crucial step in causing the vesicle destruction is the structural change into stable POM–lipid conjugates, which are known as surfactant-encapsulated clusters.
