5a, b) [7]. With increase in the diameter of proteoliposomes, larger t-/v-SNARE complexes were formed (Fig. 5c, d). A strong linear relationship between size of the SNARE complex and vesicle diameter is demonstrated from these studies (Fig. 6) [7]. 9725 between vesicle diameter and SNARE-complex size (Fig. 6). 3 Role of SNAREs in Membrane Fusion 21 Fig. 3 Opposing bilayers containing t- and v-SNAREs respectively, interact in a circular array to form conducting pores. (a) Schematic diagram of the bilayer-electrophysiology setup.

A) Unfused v-SNARE vesicles on t-SNARE reconstituted lipid membrane. (b) Dislodgement and/or fusion of v-SNARE-reconstituted vesicles with a t-SNARE-reconstituted lipid membrane, exhibit formation of channellike structures due to the interaction of v- and t-SNAREs in a circular array. The size of these channels range between 50 and 150 nm (b–d). Several 3D AFM amplitude images of SNAREs arranged in a circular array (c) and some at higher resolution (d), illustrating a channel-like structure at the center is depicted.

Lowered levels of cholesterol may also promote lipid raft dynamics, weaken the binding of surface proteins, and alter steady-state intracellular ion concentrations [50]. Bicarbonate triggers phosphatidylserine exposure and reorganization of plasma membrane of sperm [53]. A rapid increase in scrambling of boar sperm membrane lipids was observed within 100 s of exposure to bicarbonate in vitro. Bicarbonate first stimulates sAC, a major adenylyl cyclase isoform in spermatozoa, increasing cyclic AMP [54, 55].
