The low aqueous solubility of phospholipids makes necessary the use of lipid carriers in studies ranging from lipid traffic and metabolism to the engineering of model membranes bearing lipid transverse asymmetry. One particular lipid carrier that has proven to be particularly useful is methyl-β-cyclodextrin (MβCD). To assess the interaction of MβCD with structurally different phospholipids, the pr ...
