PMID:  4084304     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The development of electric current with time in a bilayer lipid membrane (BLM) formed from dipalmitoylphosphatidic acid on introducing Ca2+ ions into the medium was studied at constant temperature and pH. The phase transition in the Ca2+-induced BLM is accompanied by the initial capacitive current followed by the occurrence of single ionic channels. The amount of transported charges in the capacitive current is 5 C/ microF. The conductivity of the single ionic channels ranges from 50 to 100 pSm.
