Abstract

The voltage dependence of capacitance was measured by using the setup which was almost the same as that for the study of ion channels. The coefficient which represents the voltage dependence of capacitance itself also changes as a function of the duration of voltage application if hexadecane is contained in bilayer lipid membrane (BLM). The method of Alvarez, O., and R. Latorre (1978. Biophys. J. 21:1-17) was extended to treat BLM with hexadecane.
