Paper Abstract

Combination of osmotic swelling and dynamic light scattering makes it possible to measure the elastic modulus of biomembranes. By this technique we have observed a drastic increase in membrane flexibility on activation of Na/glucose cotransporters in membrane vesicles prepared from brush-borders of rat small intestine and on activation by micromolar [Ca2] of exocytosis in secretory granules isolated from rat pancreatic acinar cells and bovine adrenal chromaffin cells. 1 .
