Applications of droplet interface bilayers: specific capacitance measurements and membrane protein corralling

Abstract:

Droplet Interface Bilayers (DIBs) have a number of attributes that distinguish them from conventional artificial lipid bilayers. In particular, the ability to manipulate bilayers mechanically is explored in this thesis. Directed bilayer area changes are used to make precise measurements of the specific capacitance of DIBs and to control the two dimensional concentration of a membrane protein reconstituted in the bilayer.

Chapter 1 provides a general introduction to the role of the l...
