The insertion of alpha- and beta-latrotoxins and sea anemone (Radianthus macrodactilus) toxin into bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs) was investigated using the method of simultaneous conductance/capacitance measurement. All the toxins investigated induced capacitance changes which preceded toxin-induced conductance increases. The processes that may underlie the observed effect are discussed.
