Patch clamp recording of gramicidin A


3 seconds part of a patch clamp recording of gramicidin A with solvent-free lipid bilayers using the Port-a-Patch measured in the Steinem lab (Institute of Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry, University of Goettingen). All rights reserved by them. The recorded data points are a conductance trace in pico Siemens and were recorded at a sampling rate of 10 kHz using a 1 kHz 4-pole Bessel filter. More details of the recording can be found in (Pein et al., 2018, Section V A) and a plot in the examples or in (Pein et al., 2018, Figure 1 lower panel).




A numeric vector containing 30,000 values.
