Sequential detection of multiple phase transitions in model biological membranes using a red-emitting conjugated polyelectrolyte



Sequential detection of multiple phase transitions in model biological membranes using a red-emitting conjugated polyelectrolyte



Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics 18(18): 12423-7



The anionic conjugated polyelectrolyte, poly[3-(6-sulfothioatehexyl)thiophene] (P3Anionic), functions as a highly sensitive probe of membrane order, uniquely capable of sequentially detecting the three key phase transitions occurring within model phospholipid bilayers. The observed sensitivity is the result of charge-mediated, selective localisation of P3Anionic within the head-groups of the phospholipid bilayer.
