Conductance channels in neutral lipid bilayers


The macroscopic conductances of membranes containing model channels are discussed in thermodynamic terms. Channels are considered to be either neutral or ionic and the energetics of the opening processes are analyzed in terms of solvation energies, the change of dielectric and the displacement of charge within the systems. The ionic nature of the channel is… (More)
