Then the skinny lipid movie was hydrated with 12 ml of distilled water at 37 ℃ for 15 min and sonicated at a frequency of 52 kHz and an influence of 100 W for 15 min. The lipid suspension was extruded 20 instances by means of 1.0 um, 0.4 um and 0.2 um polycarbonate membrane (Nuclepore Monitor-Etched Membranes, Whatman) successively to assemble a transparent suspension of lipid by utilizing a LiposoFast extruder equipment (Avestin). The platelets (PLTs) have been collected from platelet wealthy plasma and platelet membrane fractions have been derived by an 80℃ repeated freeze–thaw course of as described beforehand . The obtained platelet membrane fractions have been successively extruded 20 instances by means of 1.0 um, 0.4 um and 0.2 um polycarbonate membrane to acquire platelet membrane vesicles (PMVs). After centrifugation at 5000 g for 15 min, the obtained PMVs have been resuspended in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) for additional use. To realize chimerism of PMVs and LPs, PMVs have been incubated with LPs at a mass ratio (complete protein: lipid) of 1:500 in an ultrasonic bathtub at room temperature for 20 min after which extruded by the identical methodology.
