Prolonged Residence Time of a Noncovalent Molecular Adapter, β-Cyclodextrin, within the Lumen of Mutant α-Hemolysin Pores


Noncovalent molecular adapters, such as cyclodextrins, act as binding sites for channel blockers when lodged in the lumen of the alpha-hemolysin (alphaHL) pore, thereby offering a basis for the detection of a variety of organic molecules with alphaHL as a sensor element. beta-Cyclodextrin (betaCD) resides in the wild-type alphaHL pore for several hundred… (More)
