Sensitized photoinactivation of minigramicidin channels in bilayer lipid membranes.

Abstract

The method of sensitized photoinactivation based on the photosensitized damage of gramicidin A (gA) molecules was applied here to study ionic channels formed by minigramicidin (the 11-residue analogue of gramicidin A) in a planar bilayer lipid membrane (BLM) of different thickness. Irradiation of BLM with a single flash of visible light in the presence of a… (More)
