Keywords:

  • effect of ice crystal reduction - stability of frozen large unilamellar vesicles;
  • ice - detrimental to cells, freezing injury of cells during cryopreservation;
  • increase of unfrozen fraction - preventing LUV aggregation and leakage;
  • cryopreservation - usage in biopreservation, preserving organisms at low temperature;
  • successful cryopreservation - survival of the frozen organisms after warming ice;
  • cryoprotective agents (CPAs) addition - improving cell survival during cryopreservation;
  • permeable CPAs - suppressing intracellular ice formation
