patch clamp


It Binds Very Tightly.....

a: The patch clamp ~
b: very tiny glass peptide

What: "The patch clamp is like that a very ti ny glass peptide attaches firmly to the cell membrane with the help of suction inside the peptide. The attachment is so firm that the seal resistance between peptide and membrane could be of gigohm (~10E9Ω), which greatly reduces the background noise caused by other ions' thermal motion." The link is slow, and part of it are in Japanese.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
