Nirod Kumar Sarangi and Prof. Archita Patnaik L-Tryptophan-Induced Electron Transport across Supported Lipid Bilayers: an Alkyl-Chain Tilt-Angle, and Bilayer-Symmetry Dependence ChemPhysChem 13
Turn up the transport: Molecular orientation-dependent electron transport across symmetric and asymmetric supported lipid bilayers (SLBs) in the presence of transport-active L-tryptophan is reported (see picture). In spite of tryptophan expediting electron-transfer rates across the SLBs, kinetic limitations effectuate electron tunnelling with a potential-independent tunnelling coefficient β=0.15 Å−1. A novel two-dimensional phase-dependent transport with an insulator–semiconductor transition is highlighted.
