Water Permeability of the Lipid Bilayer: Experimental Studies of the Structure of Some Simple Bilayers
The past few years I have been studying the water permeability of some simple lipid bilayers with the goal of finding out to what extent the lipid bilayer looks like an appropriately chosen bulk hydrocarbon liquid to the water molecules passing through (Petersen, 1980). Let me point out right off that the membranes I am studying have no special water channels--I am talking about water permeation through the lipid matrix.
