Aqueous droplets in oil that are coated with lipid monolayers and joined through interface bilayers are useful for biophysical measurements on membrane proteins. Functional networks of droplets that can act as light sensors, batteries and electrical components can also be made by incorporating pumps, channels and pores into the bilayers. These networks of droplets mimic simple tissues, but so far have not been used in physiological environments because they have been constrained to a bulk oil… CONTINUE READING
