Biophysical hydrophobicity scales suggest that partitioning of a protein segment from an aqueous phase into a membrane is governed by its perceived segmental hydrophobicity but do not establish specifically (i) how the segment is identified in vivo for translocon-mediated insertion or (ii) whether the destination lipid bilayer is biochemically receptive to(More)
A membrane potential is shown to be established in phosphatidylcholine/cholesterol unilamellar vesicles using valinomycin in conjunction with a potassium ion gradient; this potential is monitored using the externally added fluorescent dye Safranine O. In the same system, transmembrane calcium fluxes are then detected using the (internally trapped)(More)
