The insertion of fully folded and assembled ion channels and pores into planar lipid bilayers for electrical recording has been facilitated by the use of conventional detergents at a final concentration below the critical micelle concentration (CMC). After the desired number of channels or pores (often one) has been incorporated into a bilayer, it is important to prevent further insertion events, which is often done by awkward techniques such as perfusion. Here, we show that the addition of s...Expand abstract
