42K+ tracer flux and steady-state conductance measurements were carried out with bilayer lipid membranes containing grisorixin, a carboxylic polyether antibiotic. When the membranes are placed between two bulk aqueous solutions of identical composition, the exchange or self-diffusion transmembrane flux of potassium is measured by a method which allows the… CONTINUE READING
