Method "Bimolecular lipid membranes have been prepared from total phospholipid extracts of human red cells. The electrical properties and water permeability of these membranes were similar to values reported earlier for other bilayer membranes."
Comments "The upper limit of the sorbitol permeability coefficient was 3X10^-8 cm/sec."
