Sizing the Radius of the Pore Formed in Erythrocytes and Lipid Vesicles by the Toxin Sticholysin I from the Sea Anemone Stichodactyla helianthus


The radius of the pore formed by sticholysin I and II (StI, StII) in erythrocytes and sticholysin I in lipid vesicles was investigated. The rate of colloid osmotic lysis of human erythrocytes, exposed to one of the toxins in the presence of sugars of different size, was measured. The relative permeability of each sugar was derived and the pore radius… (More)
