Membrane functionalization: The interaction of a spin-labeled rod with membranes is investigated. The rod is embedded in the membranes in a tilted orientation (see figure) to adjust for the varying hydrophobic thicknesses. By using cyclodextrins, the rod can be extracted/incorporated from/into the membranes. This will improve the future applications of rods in cellular systems as stable membrane-associated anchors for the functionalization of membrane surfaces.
