Comments P.63 top paragraph: "With changing composition, the average rupture stress increases with increasing cholesterol [Figure 12(A)] and reflects the almost linear decrease in area per lipid molecule as cholesterol condenses the bilayer (Table 1). The critical areal strain [Figure 12(B)] increases, reaches a maximum, then decreases with increasing cholesterol. [Investigators] have recently measured much stiffer membranes (Table 1), and the trend is for stiffer membranes to expand the least, sometimes as little as 1% at failure."
