DR. HYDE: I want to review briefly three topics that in my judgment are relevant to muscular dystrophy studies and persons involved in these studies using ESR spectroscopy. These topics are: (1) the positions of rotational diffusion of membrane constituents in lipid bilayers; (.2) the behavior of oxygen in lipid bilayers and the ways in which it can interfere with ESR spin-label measurements; and (3) a review of some recent ESR instrumental approaches that might be useful in investigations of membranes.
