It is commonly supposed that dioxygen (O(2)) transport through biomembranes is ensured by the high permeability of a lipid bilayer in which O(2) diffusion mobility is close to that in water. However, the fact that microviscosity of lipid membranes is higher than that of water by two to three orders of magnitude speaks against this concept. Therefore, in(More)
137 Transmembrane transport of oxygen is a fundamental process in vital functions of aerobic organisms. Oxygen is acknowledged to easily penetrate across biological membranes via simple diffusion. It is believed that the diffusion resistance of the lipid bilayer does not exceed the diffusion resistance of a water layer of the same thickness. However, these(More)
The prostaglandin F2 alpha (in concentration 1,4 or 14 microM) has been shown to induce the current fluctuations across the bilayers under the action on the planar bilayer membranes from the soya total phospholipids. The current fluctuations depend on the potential, their number expresses indistinctly and corresponds to the conductivity jumps across the(More)
It was shown that understanding the mechanism of rhythmic excitation in cells and tissues requires the combination of physiological and biophysical approaches. Systemic studies of changes in the physicochemical characteristics of the object were carried out by a protocol that takes into account the mode of rhythmic excitation and the functional sate of the(More)
