Inside Cover: Crystalline Lipid Domains: Characterization by X-Ray Diffraction and their Relation to Biology (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 16/2011)
Saturated lipid molecules may spontaneously form crystalline lipid domains. X-ray diffraction studies performed on artificial lipid vesicles, monolayers, and supported bilayers have provided substantial information on the lipid organization in these domains. In their Minireview on page 3620 ff., R. Ziblat, L. Leiserowitz, and L. Addadi discuss various X-ray methods and the derived structural motifs of the crystalline lipid domains.
