 Title    Effects of Carbohydrates on the Ion Conductance of the Hemocyanin Channel  
 Abstract    The effects o f glucose and sucrose on the ionic conductance properties o f the channel formed by Megathura crenulata hemocyanin in planar lipid bilayers have been studied using m em branes o f different compositions. It was found that glucose at high concentrations strongly affects the time constants o f the current relaxations observed in m em branes containing many channels after a step in the voltage clamp from ground to a positive value. At m uch lower concentrations both sucrose and glucose strengthened the binding o f Ba2+ to the protein, what in turn has the effect to shift the conductance voltage curve o f the pore towards negative potentials. The possible mechanism underlying these effects and the analogies with other studies on the interaction o f sugars and alcohols with proteins have been discussed.
