Controlling transmembrane protein concentration and orientation in supported lipid bilayers.

Abstract

The trans-membrane protein - proteorhodopsin (pR) has been incorporated into supported lipid bilayers (SLB). In-plane electric fields have been used to manipulate the orientation and concentration of these proteins, within the SLB, through electrophoresis leading to a 25-fold increase concentration of pR.
