Zan Schulten and Klaus Schulten. Model for the resistance of the proton channel formed by the proteolipid of ATPase. European Biophysics Journal, 11:149-155, 1985.

SCHU85 The conductance observed for single proton channels formed by proteolipids of ATPase (Schindler and Nelson 1982) is rationalized in terms of a hydrogen bonded network model. A simple algebraic expression for the resistance predicted for such a model is presented and the results are compared to the experimental observations. The comparison suggests that the conduction involves a series of bound water molecules and perhaps amino acid side groups. Key words: Proton channel, hydrogen-bonded network, resistance.
