In the planar bilayer section methods are described for the expression of ion channels in xenopus laevis oocytes the isolation of their membranes the insertion of ion channels into the bilayer by vesicle fusion and the recording of single ion channel current measurements at a constant applied voltage the reconstitution of bacterial . Even virus antigens can be detected by ion channel biosensors the study of ion channels and other transmembrane proteins is expected to lead to the development of new medications and therapies . Purified membrane transport protein such as an ion channel is completely dependent upon the reconstitution of the protein into a membrane which provides a suitably hydrophobic environment for the protein and a barrier through which the channel can catalyze the movement of ions 3 methods of ion channel reconstitution. A lipid solution is applied to the aperture with subsequent formation of a planar bilayer membrane on the hole this is followed by reconstitution of ion channel proteins ion channels can be inserted into bilayer lipid membrane blm directly from a micellar solution or fused with liposomes. Scanty understanding of channel structures and because of the difficulty in iso lating functionally active channel proteins in this volume which can be considered a biochemically slanted companion to sakmann and nehers single channel recording i have tried to present a view of the current landscape of ion channel reconstitution
