Abstract

The present consensus view of biomembranes is that of a dynamic structure consisting of a fluid lipid bilayer matrix into which membrane proteins are embedded through hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions. For some years we have been studying the structure of biomembranes and at the same time attempting to use our knowledge of biomembrane structure to develop new types of biomaterial. In this review we present some of our more recent studies of biomembranes and indicate the most recent developments of our studies on biomimetic biomaterials.
