Investigating the function of ion channels in tethered lipid membranes by impedance spectroscopy

A review. The function of biol. important ion channels can be measured in supported lipid membranes by impedance spectroscopy. This approach offers substantial advantages over traditional electrophysiol. measurements. In this article, we present an overview of the field, with a special emphasis on the reconstitution of ion channels in lipid bilayers tethered to gold electrodes and the modulation of their channel activity by specific ligand binding.
