-spread "monomolecular films" (Biophysical journal, 2014) on many bodies of water to conclude the idea of particle repulsion.
-considered the forces that causes oil to spread on water surface to conclude: there to be no natural repulsion between air and water; noted that oil and water did not mix forming a film above the water.
-conducted experiments from Thomas Young's research
- dropped approximately 0.81mg of olive oil into a sponge bath
-studied the effects of surface tension and water with only her kitchen equipment.
-created an apparatus called "Schieberinne" to measure differences in surface tension of water with other substances
- analyzed the behavior of surface tension of water with soluble substances
-recognized by Lord Raleigh, and in 1892, calculated the thickness of the oil film to be 13 x10 ^-8cm

-studied Ernst von Bibra’s theory of anesthesia (1847) which states that anesthetics dissolve and takes out fatty constituents from brain cells thus changing their activity and causing anesthesia.
-theorized similarly in which hydrophobic anesthetics were attracted to other hydrophobic molecules such as lipids in the brain so anesthetics bonded with and dissolved lipids.
-his new found understanding of the relationship between the two led him to experiment on tadpoles
-he concluded that there was an correlation between lipid solubility and anesthetic potency
Hans Horst Meyer

-Theorized 3 things: lipid theory of cell permeability, lipid theory of narcosis and involvement of Na+/ K+ exchange
-created Overton's lipid theory of plasma permeability
-hypothesized that membranes are composed of lipids because substances that dissolve in lipids enter cells faster than those that are insoluble.
- concluded that the membrane was made up of lecithin and cholesterol

Pliny the Elder
(23 A.D - 79 A.D)
-was the first in recorded history to inquire about the effects between oil and water
-observed and talked about a calming effect between oil and sea water
-recorded it in the "
Natural History
" encyclopedia written by him
-"'. . . sea water is made smooth by oil, and so divers sprinkle oil on their face because it calms the rough element. . ." (Tanford 1989)'". (Eichman, 2014)

-discovered that the ability of a substance to pass through the membrane correlated to the chemical nature
Year of contribution: 1917
-studied Surface chemistry which is the study of chemical forces acting between the interfaces of different substances
-developed the concept of absorption which is the adhesion of atoms or molecules to a surface.
-discovered that the layer of accumulated atoms on the surface is only one molecule thick; which was made out to be a monolayer, or monomolecular film.
-tweaked Agnes Pockel's device and called it the "Langmuir Blodgett Trough" to make accurate measurements of surface area given the amount
-He hypothesized that the fatty acid molecules form a monolayer by grouping together vertically while hydrocarbon chains are not in contact with water and the carboxyl groups are in contact with water
Irving Langmuir

- said external Na molecules are exchanged for internal K ions
year of contribution: 1925
- conducted experiments to extract lipids from red blood cells using acetone and a device similar to the Langmuir trough
- concluded that lipids could form a monolayer and also a bilayer
- discovered the surface area red blood cells (cells from the monolayer) to be twice that of the lipid cells
-concluded that red blood cells are covered with a fatty substance that is two molecules thick
- one of the first to propose a possible structure and orientation for the membrane that was proved , later on, to be mostly correct

concluded there was a molecule thickness of factor 2
arrangement of bilayer
-did not completely extract lipids and were slightly inaccurate in the surface area of red blood cells
-Danielli discovered that proteins could be adsorbed to oil droplets taken from mackerel eggs, working in Harvey's lab
-Danielli and Davson proposed the first accepted membrane model which was a "'sandwich of lipids"'(Eichman, 2014) while the proteins remained outside surrounding the proteins in a bilayer. The electrically charged heads facing towards the water and the poly adenine tails facing inwards.
- Danielli and Davson proposed that without proteins in the membrane to help certain chemicals move, certain processes would not occur
- made an error in the location of the proteins

James Danielli
Globular protein membrane model
J. David Robertson
Year of contribution: 1957
-modified the Danielli and Davson membrane model according to electron microscope studies that he refereed to as "unit membrane"
- noticed a 3 layer arrangement; a "trilaminar appearance that has two darker outer lines and a lighter inner part: (dark-light-dark arrangement)
- the concept of various membranes in a cell are in unit membranes became valid however: Cell membrane, membranes of endoplasmic reticulum, golgi complex and lysosomes are unit membranes but nuclear membrane, membranes of mitochondria are double unit membranes.
J. David Robertson
Roberson Model of Unit Membrane
picture is credited to http://www.cytochemistry.net/cell-biology/Robertson.jpg)
-co-invented and constructed the electron microscope
-electrons are accelerated until their wavelength is about one hundredth of the wavelength of white light in a vacuum and then are focused on cell sample which become absorbed or scatters by the cell parts to form an image on electron-sensitive photographic plate.
-can see down to about 10 angstroms
-helped to formulate the unit membrane model by J. David Robertson
-allows scientist to observe the delicate structure of the membrane

electron microscope (original- zoom in to see)
year of contribution:
-proposed his theory: "Membrane Theory of Electrical Potentials" that could be seen in cells and tissue
- theory stated that all living cells contained an electrolyte interior that was enclosed by a thin membrane that was impermeable to ions.
- hypothesized about an electrical potential difference present in the membrane at rest and that the ion permeability value would decline into a small value when there is activity
-later proved correct by german scientist: Rudolf Höber

year of contribution: 1910
- measured electrical resistance to alternating current of clump of red blood cells centrifuged in sucrose.
- discovered that the resistance was considered to be high at 1 kilocycle/ second and low at 10 megacycles/ second
-discovered 10 megacycles/ second to be the resistance of a 0.4% NaCl solution

-measured "capacitance of the red blood cell membrane to be 0.81μF/cm^2
-he calculated the thickness of the membrane to be 33 Angstroms assuming that the membrane is an oil film with a dielectric constant of 3
-this led to the first indication that the membrane had molecular dimensions and a unitary structure

Henri Edgar Devaux
- experimented on oil films on water and protein monolayers at both air with water and oil with water interfaces
- conducted an experiment where he agitated a solution with albumen with benzene and water and saw with a certain amount of albumen, the benzene would form droplets and the albumen spread at the oil-water complex into a monolayer
-there was a low surface tension

Book written by Henri Devaux on the oil-water complex
year of contribution: (approximately) 1930
-conducted experiments of an oil droplet interacting with a bare marine egg
-observed that the oil droplet passed through the surface and appeared as a "a droplet on the cytoplasmic side"(Robertson 2014).
- also observed that if two droplets were used on different areas and the seawater was shaken, the droplets moved relative to each other
-used unfertilized arbacia eggs immersed in acids of pH 6 and pH 9 in calcium chloride solution and compared it to eggs in acid sea water of pH 6 and 6.8 and natural sea water with pH 8.2
-noted that the surface tensions differed
Robert Chambers and M. J. Kopac

-polished a method created by Dr. Albert Claude called cell fractionation which allowed one to separate the parts of a cell to be observed under an electron microscope
-observed the endoplasmic reticulum to be a series of folded membranes that take up most of the cytosol and also observed ribosomes attached to the sides.
-also discovered microcosm, mitochondria, lysosome, vacuoles
-discovered endoplasmic system
- deciphered the structure of mitochondria and saw that microsomes are involved in internal cellular transport system
-method was to grind the cell to break the cell membrane and then used centrifugation to sort the organelles by mass for additional examination
George E. Palade
Picture is credited to (http://www.rockefeller.edu/about/awards/lasker/gpalade)
-given that the proteins were able to penetrate through the lipid bilayer, they proposed a new model such that the proteins were not fixed on the membrane and moved with fluidity
-proposed that the outer and inner surfaces could be seen as a largely naked lipids and the protein could be seen as macromolecules placed in the lipid bilayer in an iceberg-like manner
-singer visualized the proteins that stretch across to the other face of the bilayer to have water filled holes in the center that helped in membrane transportation
-conducted experiments that fused human cells to mice cells and observed the both types of cells to be on their respective sides of the cell but in 40 minutes, the proteins were evenly distributed on the membrane

-polished a technique called Freeze Fracture Etch electron microscopy that was created by R. L. Steere in 1957
- involves splitting frozen cell membranes apart
- observed that membranes fractured transversely result in the same appearance found in sections of triple-layered unit membranes
-became important in determining the structure of the membrane
Hans Moor and K. Mühlethaler
picture credited to http://www.cytochemistry.net/cell-biology/membr9.jpg
-used a specialized technique that allowed them to examine the membrane and map a specific type of lipid onto the cell membranes of a mouse; they put lipids with rare stable isotopes into the mouse cells and imaged it
-found out that sphingolipids which are molecules that were thought to interact with cholesterol, in reality, do not work in the same way as originally thought and that lipids still formed domains
- found that the presence of domains was affected by cholesterol but he cytoskeleton had a bigger impact
year of contribution: 2003
Juan C.Sáez, Viviana M. Berthoud, María C. Brañes, Agustín D. Martínez, and Eric C. Beyer
-used new approaches and studies to expand knowledge on integral membrane proteins that form hexamers that are called connexons
-two connexons that are docked together form a gap junction channel which are in charge of transferring ions and small molecules and propagation of inositol triphosphate-dependent calcium waves.
- new studies on protein trafficking/assembly, phosphorylation, and interactions with other connexins or other proteins have been reached

-original thought was that a specific receptor would reacts with a particular GTP-binding protein or with several in only one family but the studies conducted show that for many G-proteins- coupled receptors (GPCR) simultaneous functional coupling with other G-proteins can be analyzed to see that intracellular effectors can be activated at that time.
- many new biochemical and pharmacological proof was discovered to support the new features of GPCR

Year of contribution: 2014
- discovered the identity of this particular chloride channel to be an anion channel called VRAC.
-a molecule called LRRC8A that is an important component of VRAC which is an anion channel protein that has its volume regulated.
-the swelling of the cell releases chloride ions and organic matter such as osmolytes from the cell initiates the activation of a particular chloride channel which is a membrane protein that can allow for chloride ions to travel
-discovered the importance of cell volume regulation such as if the cell volume is exceeded then osmolytes and many small amino acids can pass through but cations like potassium and sodium cannot pass through
