Unformatted text preview: (Explain) c) The conductance of a lipid bilayer membrane containing valinomycin in a medium containing potassium ions decreased abruptly when the temperature was lowered from 40°C to 36°C. In contrast, the change in conductance of the same membrane containing gramacidin was negligible when exposed to the same temperature drop in the same medium. Provide a brief explanation for these observations....
