Water-soluble Folch-Lees proteolipid apoprotein from bovine CNS white matter induces a voltage-dependent conductance in black lipid membranes. Na+ is required for the induced conductance change but the established conductance has very low ionic selectivity. The induced conductance fluctuates with a minimum amplitude of 10−11–10−10 mho. The magnitude of the conductivity change is dependent on protein concentration and on the composition of lipid bilayers. At a fixed voltage the induced… CONTINUE READING
