Interaction of cytochrome c with cardiolipin in the presence of hydrogen peroxide induces peroxidase activity in cytochrome c and the ability to oxidize membrane lipids. These cytochrome c properties play a substantial role in the cytochrome c-mediated apoptotic reactions. In the present study an electric properties (specific capacitance and integral conductance) of the cardiolipin-containing asolectin planar bilayer lipid membranes (pBLM) in the presence of cytochrome c and hydrogen peroxide were studied. Cytochrome c interaction with cardiolipin-containing pBLM in the presence of hydrogen peroxide resulted in the dramatic increase of the conductance, pores production, there growth up to 3.5nm diameter and subsequent membrane destruction. In the absent of hydrogen peroxide cytochrome c demonstrated almost no effect on the membrane capacitance and conductance. The data obtained prove the pivotal role of cytochrome c and membrane lipids in the permeabilization of pBLM. Correlation of apoptotic reactions and cytochrome c-mediated membrane permeability is discussed.
