  • Colicin Ia forms voltage-dependent channels in planar phospholipid bilayers containing acidic phospholipids. Addition of the neutral detergent octyl glucoside, at concentrations three orders of magnitude below its critical micelle concentration (CMC), greatly increases channel-forming activity without altering the properties of the channels themselves. Further, octyl glucoside promotes formation of channels by colicin Ia in membranes containing only neutral lipids, making it possible to study… CONTINUE READING
