- adj. Having a single layer or lamella.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Small unilamellar fatty acid vesicles grow when fed with fatty acid micelles and can be forced to divide by extrusion, but this artificial division process results in significant loss of protocell contents during each division cycle.
Crowe JH (1991) Solution effects on the thermotropic phase transition of unilamellar liposomes.
Large unilamellar vesicles (LUV) with ~100 nm of diameter were obtained by extrusion of multilamellar vesicles, as described elsewhere

Drug leakage from a widely used type of liposome, multilamellar liposomes (MLVs), is inherently minimized relative to drug leakage from one-layer, or unilamellar, liposomes due to MLVs 'basic configuration (
