OmpF - "Lipid Bilayer recordings of OmpF reconstituted in Proteoliposomes "

Summary:

Solvent-free planar lipid bilayers were formed in an automatic manner by bursting of giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) positioned by suction on the apertures of our patch clamp chips made from borosilicate glass substrate. Incubation of GUVs with purified ion channel protein of interest yielded proteoliposomes. These proteoliposomes allow for immediate recording of channel activity after GUV sealing. This approach reduces the time consuming, laborious and sometimes difficult protein reconstitution processes normally performed after bilayer formation.
