Measurement of transendothelial or transepithelial electrical resistances (TERs) is a straightforward in situ experimental approach to monitor the expression or modulation of barrier-forming cell-to-cell contacts (tight junctions) in cultured cells grown on porous filters. Although widely accepted, there is currently no device available to automatically(More)
The present paper scrutinizes the application of impedance spectroscopy and quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM) measurements in the analysis of composite layers of receptor containing lipid bilayers, and their interaction with external ligands or pore-forming peptides. The formation of supramolecular structures and their analysis will be discussed. Impedance(More)
Cyclophilin A (CyP-A), the major intracellular receptor for the immunosuppressant cyclosporin A (CsA), is a member of the immunophilin class of proteins, which all possess peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase activity and, therefore, are believed to be involved in protein folding and/or intracellular protein transport. The CyP-A protein is encoded by a(More)
