Abstract

original image

The cover image shows NMR relaxation data for cholesterol-doped liposomes. The contributions from the different dynamic modes are highlighted in colour. Analysis by D. F. Brougham and E. Anoardo et al. shows that the non-cholesterol lipids can be partitioned into affected (ordered) and unaffected populations, with three ordered lipids to each cholesterol over a range of concentrations, as shown on p. 425.
