Biological membranes are a fluid mosaic complex composed of various proteins and a phospholipid bilayer, which are the major structural components. Analyses of the interaction between the components of cell membranes and other biological ligands are of importance in understanding the biochemical functions of cell membranes. To aid in addressing these analyses, liposomes (rearranged artificial phospholipid membranes) have been widely utilized. Liposomes are the artificial vesicles in which an aqueous volume solution is enclosed by a membrane composed of phospholipids. Application of liposomes has particular advantages in the analysis of the interaction between the components of the cell membrane and other biological ligands.
