A novel concept is introduced for the oriented incorporation of membrane proteins into solid supported lipid bilayers. Recombinant cytochrome c oxidase solubilized in detergent was immobilized on a chemically modified gold surface via the affinity of its histidine-tag to a nickel-chelating nitrilo-triacetic acid (NTA) surface. The oriented protein monolayer(More)
A new concept of solid-supported tethered bilayer lipid membrane (tBLM) for the functional incorporation of membrane proteins is introduced. The incorporated protein itself acts as the tethering molecule resulting in a versatile system in which the protein determines the characteristics of the submembraneous space. This architecture is achieved through a(More)
