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 40C to 36C. 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....
