Solvent substitution as a probe of channel gating in Myxicola. Differential effects of D2O on some components of membrane conductance.

Careful examination of effects of solvent substitution on excitable membranes offers the theoretical possibility of identifying those aspects of the gating and translocation processes which are associated with significant changes in solvent order. Such information can then be used to develop or modify moire detailed models. We have examined the effects of… CONTINUE READING
