Droplet interface bilayers for the study of membrane proteins

Abstract:

Aqueous droplets submerged in an oil-lipid mixture become enclosed by a lipid monolayer. The droplets can be connected to form robust networks of droplet interface bilayers (DIBs) with functions such as a biobattery and a light sensor. The discovery and characterization of an engineered nanopore with diode-like properties is enabling the construction of DIB networks capable of biochemical computing. Moreover, DIB networks might be used as model systems for the study of membrane-based biolo...
