My research project involves the addition of triton x-100 to permeate the 
membrane of paramecium in order to diffuse cAMP into them.  But won't that 
evenutally kill the paramecium if the effects are not temporary.  If the 
effects are not temporary then a reversal chemical is needed.  Is there one 
that you may know of?  A chemical that will close the membrane?
