If the electric pulse is prolonged, pores will expand, and beyond a certain limit, these pores will cause a BLM to rupture irreversibly. For liposomes, intense or long electric pulses cause fragmentations and produce small vesicles. These complex molecular events may be represented by Schemes (6) and (7) [ 3 7 ] . A ^ Β -*C \ I (6) B' < - C ' C ^ A] / A ^ Β -> D -> A2 \ Ε -> A3 (7) The A to Β transition in both schemes denotes the pore initiation step. Lattice defects of the bilayer are converted into hydrophobic pores.

Coster and Z i m m e r m a n (1975) directly injected current in a cell of Valonia utricularts and measured the transmembrane potential. W h e n the potential augmented by the injected current reached a critical value of about IV, any further increase was counteracted by a dramatic increase in the membrane conductance, which was just large enough to keep the potential at the critical value. W h e n the current was held constant after the breakdown, the potential gradually decreased on the microsecond time scale.

Lattice defects are highly fluctuating structures, and the compressibility of the bilayer is highest in these boundary regions, at the Tc [ 3 0 ] , An electric field can also cause lipid phase transitions. T h e molecular events induced by an electric field should be similar to those induced by heat, both reflecting different modes of motion of molecules in the bilayer. Kinetics of lipid phase transitions have been studied by various physicochemical methods [31—33]. T h e trans/cis isomerization of a C H 2 — C H 2 bond takes place in 5 ns [ 3 3 ] .
