Abstract

Abstract The ionic transport properties, capacitance and breakdown voltage of bilayer macrovesicles made from lecithin, dodecaprenol and their mixtures have been studied. The electrical measurements showed that polyprenol in lipid bilayers increases membrane permeability and elasticity, and decreases membrane thickness. Some physiological implications of these findings are indicated.
