Structural Changes within the Tethering Elements of tBLMs under the Effect of Bias Potentials

Project Member(s): Cranfield, C., Valenzuela, S.

Funding or Partner Organisation: The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO Project funding)

Start year: 2015

Summary: The present proposal seeks to extend the study of both the spacing and volume of the tethered lipid bilayer membrane reservoir due to the application of a bias potential between the supporting gold electrode and the bulk of the bathing electrolyte solution.
