||"[Researchers] measured membrane
thickness of the different fractions on high magnification
prints of electron micrographs. The values obtained
from this analysis are listed in Table II."
||"The average thickness
of the membranes was 7.1±0.4 nm. The plasma
membrane was significantly thicker (9.2±0.4 nm), and
the lipid particle membrane was significantly thinner (4.5±0.4 nm), as expected for a lipid monolayer that delineates
the lipid particles (Leber et al., 1994)."
