Effect of calcium ions and ionic strength on model bilayer structure


Calcium ions have been shown in a preliminary experiment to have a dramatic effect on the thickness and structure of free supported bilayer films. In this proposal we investigate the effect of concentration on the swelling and reshrinking of bilayers of DPPC attached to silicon surfaces. We also investigate the effect of ionic shielding by using a non-specific ion to increase overall ionic strength.
