Inorganic mercury (Hg2+) transport through lipid bilayer membranes

Abstract

Diffusion of inorganic mercury (Hg2+) through planar lipid bilayer membranes was studied as a function of chloride concentration and pH. Membranes were made from egg lecithin plus cholesterol in tetradecane. Tracer (203Hg) flux and conductance measurements were used to estimate the permeabilities to ionic and nonionic forms of Hg. At pH 7.0 and [Cl… (More)
