A theory is presented to explain the dynamic characteristics of an electric potential and the resistance of a surface membrane during the formation of a protoplasmic droplet isolated from Nitella. Basic equations are coupled ones for describing ion concentrations near the surface of the droplet, active and passive ion fluxes on the surface, and kinetics of membrane-constituting molecules diffusing from the inside of the protoplasm. The present results give a good explanation of the observed… CONTINUE READING
