Driving bioenergetic processes with electrodes

Author affiliations


Surface-applied electrochemical potentials are used to drive the formation of a proton gradient in adsorbed lipid vesicles. Protons are pumped across the lipid bilayer by an ubiquinol oxidase from Escherichia coli and this activity is controlled by electrochemically reducing the ubiquinone pool in the vesicles.
