Then when both pins were replaced, the red light remained on. This process can be repeated. Disconnect 1, green on, red off. Replace 1, green remains on. Disconnect 7, red on, green off. Replace 1, red remains on. 3. During heat shock, changes in lipid-protein interactions in the membrane alter the proteins that maintain membrane organization. This increases the fluidity of the plasmid membrane. With greater fluidity, the membrane is able to adopt new configurations, making it easier to bind receptors and allow more transport (both active and passive) across the membrane. Thus, during heat shock, the membrane of bacteria becomes more fluid and is able to form more conformations that allow it to take up DNA....
