... the morphology of CLDC to their transfection activity under in vitro as well as in vivo conditions. While MLV display a multitude of bilayers and diameters of several micrometers, SUV have only one bilayer and can be as small as 15 nm[1-4]. Because of their small size (5-50 nm), spherical micelles ...
