Phospholipid bilayer membranes sensitive to changes in pH, in temperature, or in the concentrations of specific organic solutes can be prepared by exploiting the conformational transitions of hydrophobic polyelectrolytes in aqueous solution. This paper provides a review of the design and preparation of responsive bilayer membranes, as well as a brief discussion of the kinetics and mechanisms of the signaling processes that are operative in such systems.
