Dynamics of Model Membranes

Francesca Natali and Marcus Trapp

Abstract

<p>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.</p> <p>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.</p>
