A gigaseal obtained with a self-assembled long-lifetime lipid bilayer on a single polyelectrolyte multilayer-filled nanopore


Sugihara, K; Vörös, J; Zambelli, T (2010). A gigaseal obtained with a self-assembled long-lifetime lipid bilayer on a single polyelectrolyte multilayer-filled nanopore. ACS Nano, 4(9):5047-5054.

Abstract

A lipid bilayer with gigaohm resistance was fabricated over a single 800 nm pore in a Si3N4 chip using 50 nm liposomes. The nanopore was prefilled with a polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) that triggered the spontaneous fusion of the lipid vesicles. Pore-forming peptide melittin was incorporated in the bilayer, and single channel activities were monitored for a period of 2.5 weeks. The long lifetime of the system enabled the observation of the time-dependent stabilization effect of the melittin open state upon bias application.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
