@biogirl yes, it is, but acid-base equilibria are not redox reactions. I don't understand what your point is.

comment What are conditions for a membrane to be settled ? (centrifugation)
What would happen to the membranes if you didn't centrifuge? (Centrifuging simply accelerates the process.)

comment What are conditions for a membrane to be settled ? (centrifugation)
If the density of the medium ("substance") is greater than the density of the membranes (which is what you have calculated) what do you think would happen? - the membranes are less dense than the medium.

comment How quickly is antibiotic resistance lost?
@sciencenewbie Under standard culture conditions (37C rich medium) they aren't expressed, and it is difficult to conceive of a selective advantage under conditions in which it is unnecessary to move towards nutrients. But some weak selective pressure can't be ruled out I guess.

comment Would expression of GroEL and GroES in erythrocytes be a potentially effective therapy for sickle cell disease?
Apart from the answers from WYSIWYG I would add that the formation of filaments of Hb in sickle cells isn't really misfolding or misassembly, rather it is due to a new assembly pathway which results from the Glu>Val mutation. GroEL helps a protein to avoid kinetic traps en route to folding, filament formation is an extra process tacked on at the end of normal folding.
