Abstract: 

A convenient model system for a biological membrane is a solid-supported membrane (SSM), which consists of a gold-supported alkanethiol|phospholipid bilayer. In combination with a concentration jump method, SSMs have been used for the investigation of several membrane transporters. Vesicles incorporating sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca-ATPase (SERCA) were adsorbed on a negatively charged SSM (octadecanethiol|phosphatidylserine bilayer). The current signal generated by the adsorbed vesicles following an ATP concentration jump was compared to that produced by SERCA-containing vesicles adsorbed on a conventional SSM (octadecanethiol|phosphatidylcholine bilayer). A significantly higher current amplitude was recorded on the serine-based SSM. The adsorption of SERCA-incorporating vesicles on the SSM was then characterized by surface plasmon resonance (SPR). The SPR measurements clearly indicate that in the presence of Ca2+ and Mg2+, the amount of adsorbed vesicles on the serine-based SSM is about twice that obtained using the conventional SSM, thereby demonstrating that the higher current amplitude recorded on the negatively charged SSM is correlated with a greater quantity of adsorbed vesicles. The enhanced adsorption of membrane vesicles on the PS-based SSM may be useful to study membrane preparations with a low concentration of transport protein generating small current signals, as in the case of various recombinantly expressed proteins.
