Abstract

We present a model system to demonstrate that the positioning of biomolecules (membrane proteins) in a nonnative, complex thin film environment can be regulated by the phase behavior of film components. Partial separation between an amphiphilic polymer and a lipid drives the protein to a fluid phase, mechanically more similar to a cellular bilayer.
