Abstract

Flotation is one of the best method for preliminary identification of protein-lipid interactions. In most widely used approach it utilizes large unilamellar vesicles, that are excellent models of freestanding membranes and do not require any additional components, like solid supports or beads that are needed in other methods commonly used for protein-lipid binding studies. Here we present results obtained during our studies on phosphatidic acid - syndapin interactions and discuss some technical aspects of this method underlying how relatively small changes in the conditions can influence the results.

Polish Abstract

Flotacja jest jedną z najefektywniejszych metod wstępnej identyfikacji oddziaływań białko-błony lipidowe. W większości przypadków wykorzystuje się w niej małe jednowarstwowe pęcherzyki lipidowe, które służą jako modele błonowe i nie wymagają dodatkowych nośników, takich jak membrany czy nanocząstki polimerowe, które są często używane w innych metodach mających na celu identyfikację oddziaływań białkolipid. W poniższej pracy prezentujemy wyniki uzyskane podczas badań oddziaływań kwasu fosfatydowego i syndapiny. Omawiamy także niektóre techniczne aspekty metody, kładąc nacisk na to jak małe zmiany w warunkach metody mogą wpłynąć na otrzymywane wyniki.
