Title:Membrane Transport Mechanism [electronic resource] : 3D Structure and Beyond
Author(s): Reinhard Krmer
Christine Ziegler
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a molecular view of membrane transport by means of numerous biochemical and biophysical techniques. The rapidly growing number of atomic structures of transporters in different conformations and the constantprogress in bioinformati cs have recently added deeper insights. The unifying mechanism of energized solute transport across membranes is assumed to consist of the conformational cycling of a carrier protein to provide access tosubstrate binding sites from either side of a cellu lar membrane. Due to the central role of active membrane transport there is considerable interest in deciphering the principles of one of the most fundamental processes in nature: thealternating access mechanism. This book brings together particularly si gnificant structure-function studies on a variety of carrier systems from different transporter families: Glutamate symporters, LeuT-like fold transporters, MFStransporters and SMR (RND) exporters, as well as ABC-type importers. The selected examples imp ressively demonstrate how the combination of functional analysis, crystallography, investigation of dynamics and computational studies hasmade it possible to create a conclusive picture, or, more precisely, a molecular movie. Although we are still far fro m a complete molecular description of the alternating access mechanism, remarkable progress has been made fromstatic snapshots towards membrane transport dynamics

Title:Basic Concepts in Physics [electronic resource] : From the Cosmos to Quarks
Author(s): Masud Chaichian
Hugo Perez Rojas
Anca Tureanu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readableintroduction to all the main ide as of modern physics. The books fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first fivechapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary mot ion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics,from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities areavoided as far as possible thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professionalphysicists. It will likewise beof interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, h igh-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics isabout and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.

Title:The Influence of Demographic Stochasticity on Population Dynamics [electronic resource] : A Mathematical Study of Noise-Induced Bistable States and Stochastic Patterns
Author(s): Tommaso Biancalani
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The dynamics of population systems cannot be understood within the framework of ordinary differential equations, which assume that the number of interacting agents is infinite. With recent advances in ecology, biochemistry andgenetics it is becoming increasingly clear that real systems are in fact subject to a great deal of noise. Relevant examples include social insects competing for resources, molecules undergoing chemical reactions in a cell and a poolof genomes subject to evolution.When the popul ation size is small, novel macroscopic phenomena can arise, which can be analyzed using the theory of stochastic processes. This thesis is centered on two unsolved problems in populationdynamics: the symmetry breaking observed in foraging populations, and the robustness of spatial patterns. We argue that these problems can be resolved with the help of two novel concepts: noise-induced bistable states and stochasticpatterns

Title:Alien Encounter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Dirk Schulze-Makuch
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:It has been nearly 100 years since the Apollo moon landings, when Jack and Vladimir, two astronauts on a mission to Venus, discover a mysterious void related to indigenous life on the planet. Subsequently more voids are detectedon Earth, Mars, Titan, and, quite ominously, inside a planetoid emerging from the Kuiper belt. Jack is sent to investigate the voids in the Solar System and intercept the planetoid - which, as becomes increasingly clear, is inhabitedby alien life forms. Jack and his crew will have little time to understand their alien biochemistry, abilities, behavior patterns, resilience, and technology, but also how these life forms relate to the voids. Humankind's firstencounter with these exotic life forms couldn't be more fateful, becomin g a race against time to save life on Earth and to reveal the true nature of the voids, which seem to be intrinsically related to life and the universe itself. Inthis novel, the author combines many topics related to state-of-the-art research in the field of astrobiology with fictional elements to produce a thrilling page turner. This new version significantly develops the astrobiologicaldenouement of the plot and features an extensive non-technical appendix where the underlying science is presented and d iscussed. From the reviews of the first edition (Voids of Eternity: Alien Encounter) Here's a thrilling yarn inthe best hard SF tradition of Asimov, James Hogan, and Ben Bova, written by a scientist who knows all about the possibilities of life in the so lar system and beyond. Dirk Schulze-Makuch weaves into his book all the astrobiologicalthemes he's worked on in recent years -- speculation about creatures in the atmosphere of Venus and on and under the surface of Mars and Titan -- together with some wel l-informed Eastern philosophy and a cracking good space battle. Agreat first novel from a rising talent. Highly recommended. David Darling, on amazon.com, 2009 The research interests of Dr. Schulz

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years, the fabrication of nanomaterials and exploration of their properties have attracted the attention of various scientific disciplines such as biology, physics, chemistry, and engineering. Although nanoparticulatesystems are of signific ant interest in various scientific and technological areas, there is little known about the safety of these nanoscale objects. It has now been established that the surfaces of nanoparticles are immediatelycovered by biomolecules (e.g. proteins, ions, and enzymes) upon their entrance into a biological medium. This interaction with the biological medium modulates the surface of the nanoparticles, conferring a biological identity totheir surfaces (referred to as a corona), which determines the subsequent cel lular/tissue responses. The new interface between the nanoparticles and the biological medium/proteins, called bio-nano interface, has been veryrarely studied in detail to date, though the interest in this topic is rapidly growing. In this book, the impor tance of the physiochemical characteristics of nanoparticles for the properties of the protein corona is discussed indetail, followed by comprehensive descriptions of the methods for assessing the protein-nanoparticle interactions. The advantages and limi tations of available corona evaluation methods (e.g. spectroscopy methods, mass spectrometry,nuclear magnetic resonance, electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography, and differential centrifugal sedimentation) are examined in detail, followed by a discussi on of the possibilities for enhancing the current methods and a call fornew techniques. Moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of protein-nanoparticle interaction phenomena are explored and discussed, with a focus on the biological impacts

Note:This book offers a state-of-the-art overview on non amplified DNA detection methods and provides chemists, biochemists, biotechnologists and material scientists with an introduction to these methods. In fact all these fields havededicated resources t o the problem of nucleic acid detection, each contributing with their own specific methods and concepts. This book will explain the basic principles of the different non amplified DNA detection methods available,highlighting their respective advantages an d limitations. The importance of non-amplified DNA sequencing technologies will be also discussed. Non-amplified DNA detection can be achieved by adopting different techniques. Such techniqueshave allowed the commercialization of innovative platforms for DNA detection that are expected to break into the DNA diagnostics market. The enhanced sensitivity required for the detection of non amplified genomic DNA has prompted newstrategies that can achieve ultrasensitivity by combining specific materials with sp ecific detection tools. Advanced materials play multiple roles in ultrasensitive detection. Optical and electrochemical detection tools are among themost widely investigated to analyze non amplified nucleic acids. Biosensors based on piezoelectric crystal have been also used to detect unamplified genomic DNA. The main scientific topics related to DNA diagnostics are discussed by anoutstanding set of authors with proven experience in the field

Title:Protein Folding and Misfolding [electronic resource] : Shining Light by Infrared Spectroscopy
Author(s): Heinz Fabian
Dieter Naumann
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Infrared spectroscopy is a new and innovative technology to study protein folding/misfolding events in the broad arsenal of techniques conventionally used in this field. The progress in understanding protein folding and misfoldingis primarily due to the development of biophysical methods which permit to probe conformational changes with high kinetic and structural resolution. The most commonly used approaches rely on rapid mixing methods to initiate the foldingevent via a sudden change in solvent con ditions. Traditionally, techniques such as fluorescence, circular dichroism or visible absorption are applied to probe the process. In contrast to these techniques, infrared spectroscopy cameinto play only very recently, and the progress made in this fiel d up to date which now permits to probe folding events over the time scale from picoseconds to minutes has not yet been discussed in a book. The aim of this book is toprovide an overview of the developments as seen by some of the main contributors to the field. The chapters are not intended to give exhaustive reviews of the literature but, instead to illustrate examples demonstrating the sort ofinformation, which infrared techniques can provide and how this information can be extracted from the experiment al data. By discussing the strengths and limitations of the infrared approaches for the investigation of folding andmisfolding mechanisms this book helps the reader to evaluate whether a particular system is appropriate for studies by infrared spectroscop y and which specific advantages the techniques offer to solve specific problems

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a concise overview of current research on the biophysics of DNA-protein interactions. A wide range of new and classical methods are presented by authors investigating physical mechanisms by which proteinsinteract with DNA. For exam ple, several chapters address the mechanisms by which proteins search for and recognize specific binding sites on DNA, a process critical for cellular function. Single molecule methods such as forcespectroscopy as well as fluorescence imaging and tracking are described in these chapters as well as other parts of the book that address the dynamics of protein-DNA interactions. Other important topics include the mechanisms by whichproteins engage DNA sequences and/or alter DNA structure. These simple but imp ortant model interactions are then placed in the broader biological context with discussion of larger protein-DNA complexes . Topics include replicationforks, recombination complexes, DNA repair interactions, and ultimately, methods to understand the chro matin context of the cell nucleus. This book will be of interest to readers who wish to explore current biophysical approaches toDNA-protein interactions across multiple levels of biological complexity

Title:Photoprotection in Plants [electronic resource] : Optical Screening-based Mechanisms

Edition:First
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Optical screening of excessive and potentially harmful solar radiation is an important photoprotective mechanism, though it has received much less attention in comparison with other systems preventing photooxidative damage tophotoautotrophic organism s. This photoprotection in the form of screening appears to be especially important for juvenile and senescing plants as well as under environmental stressesi.e. in situations where the efficiency ofenzymatic ROS elimination, DNA repair and other classica l photoprotective systems could be impaired. This book represents an attempt to develop an integral view of optical screening-based photoprotection in microalgae and higherplants. Towards this end, the key groups of pigments involved in the screening of u ltraviolet and visible components of solar radiation in microalgae and higher plants, and the patterns of their accumulation and distribution withinplant cells and tissues, are described. Special attention is paid to the manifestations of screening pigmen t accumulation in the optical spectra of plants. It is also demonstrated that understanding these effects and theirrelationships to screening pigments makeup and spectroscopy in plants provides valuable insights into the state of plants long-term photoacc limation, as well as ample opportunities for the non-destructive quantification ofscreening pigments and the assessment of the efficiency of photoprotection providing by these pigments in situ

Edition:4th
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is about devices commonly called sensors. Digital systems, however complex and intelligent they might be, must receive information from the outside world that is generally analog and not electrical. Sensors areinterface devices between vari ous physical values and the electronic circuits who understand only a language of moving electrical charges. In other words, sensors are the eyes, ears, and noses of silicon chips. Unlike other bookson sensors, this book is organized according to the meas ured variables (temperature, pressure, position, etc.) that make it much more practical and easier to read. In this new edition recent ideas and developments have been added whileless important and non-essential designs were dropped. Sections on practical designs and use of the modern micro-machining technologies have been revised substantially. This book is a reference text that can be used by students,researchers interested in modern instrumentation (applied physicists and engineers), sensor designers, application engineers and technicians whose job it is to understand, select and/or design sensors for practical systems. The scopeof this book is rather broad covering many different designs. Some are well known, but describing them is still useful for st udents and those who look for a convenient reference. It is the authors intention to present acomprehensive and up-to-date account of the theory (physical principles), design, and practical implementations of various sensors for scientific, industrial, an d consumer applications. About the Author: Jacob Fraden holds a Ph. D. inmedical electronics and is the CEO of Advanced Monitors Corp., a company that produces medical and veterinary temperature sensors and monitors. He holds over 30 patents in the areas of sensing, medical instrumentation, consumerelectronics, security, and others

Note:Physics and the life sciences have established new connections within the past few decades, resulting in biological physics as an established subfield with strong groups working in many physics departments. These interactionsbetween physics and biolo gy form a two-way street with physics providing new tools and concepts for understanding life, while biological systems can yield new insights into the physics of complex systems. To address the challenges ofthis interdisciplinary area, The Physics of Pro teins: An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics is divided into three interconnected sections. In Parts I and II, early chapters introduce the terminology anddescribe the main biological systems that physicists will encounter. Simila rities between biomolecules, glasses, and solids are stressed with an emphasis on the fundamental concepts of living systems. The central section (Parts III andIV) delves into the dynamics of complex systems. A main theme is the realization that biologica l systems, in particular proteins, do not exist in unique conformations but can assume a very large number of slightly different structures.This complexity is captured in the concept of a free energy landscape and leads to the conclusion that fluctuations are crucial for the functioning of biological systems. The final chapter of this section challenges the reader to applythese concepts to a problem that appears in the current literature. An extensive series of appendices (Part V) provide descriptions of the key physical tools and analytical methods that have proven powerful in the study of the physicsof proteins. The appendices are designed to be consulted throughout the section on protein dynamics without breaking the deductive flow of the logic in the central section of the book

Note:This volume is a collection of articles from the proceedings of the International School of Structural Biology and Magnetic Resonance 8th Course: Biophysics and the Challenges of Emerging Threats. This NATO Advance Study Institute(ASI) was held in Er ice at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture on 19 through 30 June 2007. The ASI brought together a diverse group of experts who bridged the fields of virology and biology, biophysics,chemistry and physics. Prominent lecturers a nd students from around the world representant a total of 24 countries participated in the NATO ASI organized by Professors Joseph Puglisi (Stanford University, USA) and Alexander Arseniev(Moscow, RU). The central hypothesis underlying this ASI was that i nterdisciplinary research, merging principles of physics, chemistry and biology, can drive new discovery in detecting and fighting bioterrorism agents, lead to cleanerenvironments, and help propel development in NATO partner countries. The ASI merged the related disciplines of biophysics, biochemistry and molecular structure to treat, detect, and understand emerging infectious diseases. It addressedthe treatment and detection of bioterrorism agents, and focused on critical partner country priorities in bi otechnology, materials, drug discovery and the environment. It provided crossroads discussing new technologies in biophysicsand structural biology, their implications pathogen detection and treatment and their role in partner country development. The ASI allowed deep and wide-ranging discussion between lecturers and students, providing overviews of keyareas and links between them. The range of topics represent the diversity of critical problems between structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics, in w hich lies the fertile ground of drug development, biotechnology and newmaterials

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Spectroscopic methods have opened up a new horizon in our knowledge of solid-state materials. Numerous techniques using electromagnetic radiation or charged and neutral particles have been invented and worked out to a high levelin order to provide mo re detailed information on the solids. The text presented here is an updated description of such methods as they were originally presented in the first edition. It covers linear response of solids toelectromagnetic radiation in a frequency range extending from megahertz or gigahertz as used in spin resonance spectroscopy, to infrared spectroscopy and various forms of spectroscopy in the visible and near visible spectral range. Itextends to spectroscopy in the UV and x-ray spectral range and eventually sev eral spectroscopic methods are addressed in the frequency range of g radiation. Likewise linear response to irradiation with particles such as electrons,positrons, muons, neutrons, and atoms is discussed. Instrumental and technical background is provided as well as application to the analysis of the solid state. New developments especially addressed in this second edition cover theexciting new field of mesoscopic and nanoscopic solids using light scattering from small particles, single electron (addition) spectroscopy, and quantization in magnetic fields. Likewise, the development and application of synchrotronradiation has encountered a dramatic progress particularly in the field of high resolution and angular resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. Free el ectron lasers from undulators in linear accelerators are becoming available withdramatic enhancement in brightness and provide a fourth generation of synchrotron light sources. The better understanding and the possibilities to manipulate spin states as it happens in spintronic research stimulated sophisticatedtechnologies in electron and nuclear spin resonance which are also covered in the new edition. Breakthrough developments were obtained in the fiel

Note:This book assembles chapters from experts in the Biophysics of RNA to provide a broadly accessible snapshot of the current status of this rapidly expanding field. The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to thediscoverers of RNA int erference, highlighting just one example of a large number of non-protein coding RNAs. Because non-protein coding RNAs outnumber protein coding genes in mammals and other higher eukaryotes, it is now thought thatthe complexity of organisms is correlated w ith the fraction of their genome that encodes non-protein coding RNAs. Essential biological processes as diverse as cell differentiation, suppression of infecting viruses and parasitictransposons, higher-level organization of eukaryotic chromosomes, and g ene expression itself are found to largely be directed by non-protein coding RNAs. The biophysical study of these RNAs employs X-ray crystallography, NMR, ensembleand single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, optical tweezers, cryo-electron microscopy, a nd other quantitative tools. This emerging field has begun to unravel the molecular underpinnings of how RNAs fulfill their multitude of rolesin sustaining cellular life. The physical and chemical understanding of RNA biology that results from biophysical studies is critical to our ability to harness RNAs for use in biotechnology and human therapy, a prospect that hasrecently spawned a multi-billion dollar industry

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The detection and neutralization of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has been of major concern for very many decades at least since the First World War. UXO continues to be the subject of intensive research in many fields of science.While today's headlines emphasize the mayhem resulting from the placement of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), humanitarian landmine clearing continues to draw significant global attention as well. In many countries of the world,landmines threaten the population and hinder re construction and fast, efficient utilization of large areas of the mined land in the aftermath of military conflicts. The reports in this volume, written by world leaders from academia,Government and industry, describe how basic ideas from mathematics, ra dar, sonar and chemistry can be combined with ongoing improvements in hardware and computation, as well as very new advances in multisensor data fusion, to yield thepromise of more sophisticated and accurate UXO detection and identification capabilities t han currently exist

Title:Cellular Signaling in Health and Disease [electronic resource]

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In todays world, three great classes of non-infectious diseases the metabolic syndromes (such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis), the cancers, and the neurodegenerative disorders have risen to the fore. Thesediseases, all associated with incre asing age of an individual, have proven to be remarkably complex and difficult to treat. This is because, in large measure, when the cellular signaling pathways responsible for maintaining homeostasisand health of the body become dysregulated, they genera te equally stable disease states. As a result the body may respond positively to a drug, but only for a while and then revert back to the disease state. Cellular Signaling inHealth and Disease summarizes our current understanding of these regulatory netwo rks in the healthy and diseased states, showing which molecular components might be prime targets for drug interventions. This is accomplished bypresenting models that explain in mechanistic, molecular detail how a particular part of the cellular signalin g web operates properly in health and improperly in disease. The stability of the health- and disease-associated states isdynamic and supported by multiple feedback loops acting positively and negatively along with linkages between pathways. During the pa st few years an ongoing series of important discoveries have been made that advance our understandingof how the body works and may guide us on how to better deal with these diseases. These include the discovery of chronic inflammation as a causal factor i n all of these disease classes, the appearance of reactive oxygen species as amessenger molecule that can act both positively and negatively, the propensity of proteins to misfold into aggregation- and disease-prone forms, and the rise of epigenetics incl uding the emergence of small non-coding RNA with importantregulatory functions out of the so-called junk RNA. Chapters are devoted to each of these classes of findings with additional details i

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The last decade has seen the development of a number of novel biophysical methods that allow the manipulation and study of individual biomolecules. The ability to monitor biological processes at this fundamental level ofsensitivity has given rise to an improved understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms. Through the removal of ensemble averaging, distributions and fluctuations of molecular properties can be characterized, transientintermediates identified, and catalytic mechanisms elucidate d. By applying forces on biomolecules while monitoring their activity, important information can be obtained on how proteins couple function to structure. The Handbook ofSingle-Molecule Biophysics provides an introduction to these techniques and presents an extensive discussion of the new biological insights obtained from them. Coverage includes: Experimental techniques to monitor and manipulateindividual biomolecules The use of single-molecule techniques in super-resolution and functional imaging Single- molecule studies of physical properties of biomolecules Single-molecule enzymology and biochemistry Single molecules in themembrane Single-molecule techniques in living cells Integration of single-molecule biophysics and nanoscience

Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text presents mathematical biology as a field with a unity of its own, rather than only the intrusion of one science into another. It updates an earlier successful edition and greatly expands the concept of the computerbiology laboratory, giving students a general perspective of the field before proceeding to more specialized topics. The book focuses on problems of contemporary interest, such as cancer, genetics, and the rapidly growing field ofgenomics. It includes new chapters on parasites, ca ncer, and phylogenetics, along with an introduction to online resources for DNA, protein lookups, and popular pattern matching tools such as BLAST. In addition, the emerging field ofalgebraic statistics is introduced and its power illustrated in the conte xt of phylogenetics. A unique feature of the book is the integration of a computer algebra system into the flow of ideas in a supporting but unobtrusive role.Syntax for both the Maple and Matlab systems is provided in a tandem format. The use of a compute r algebra system gives the students the opportunity to examine what if scenarios, allowing them to investigate biological systems in away never before possible. For students without access to Maple or Matlab, each topic presented is complete. Graphic visu alizations are provided for all mathematical results. Mathematical Biology includes extensive exercises, problemsand examples. A year of calculus with linear algebra is required to understand the material presented. The biology presented proceeds from the study of populations down to the molecular level no previous coursework in biology isnecessary. The book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students studying mathematics or biology and for scientists and researchers who wish to study the appli cations of mathematics and computers in the natural sciences

Title:Voltage-Sensitive Ion Channels [electronic resource] : Biophysics of Molecular Excitability
Author(s): H. Richard Leuchtag
Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Voltage-sensitive ion channels are macromolecules embedded in the membranes of nerve and muscle fibers of animals. Because of their physiological functions, biochemical structures and electrical switching properties, they are atan intersection of bio logy, chemistry and physics. Despite decades of intensive research under the traditional approach of gated structural pores, the relation between the structure of these molecules and their function remainsenigmatic. This book critically examines physicall y oriented approaches not covered in other ion-channel books. It looks at optical and thermal as well as electrical data, and at studies in the frequency domain as well as in the timedomain. Rather than presenting the reader with only an option of mechani stic models at an inappropriate pseudo-macroscopic scale, it emphasizes concepts established in organic chemistry and condensed state physics. The booksapproach to the understanding of these unique structures breaks with the unproven view of ion channels as structurally gated pores. Rather, it proposes gateless gating, in which the onset and cessation of avalanches of ions crossingthe membrane is explained as a cooperative phenomenon in a system poised far from equilibrium. These events, called channel op ening and closing, are initiated by an electrical depolarization, a mechanical stimulus or even a thermalfluctuation

Note:...Noy's Handbook of Molecular Force Spectroscopy is both a timely and useful summary of fundamental aspects of molecular force spectroscopy, and I believe it would make a worthwhile addition to any good scientific library. Newresearch groups that ar e entering this field would be well advisedto study this handbook in detail before venturing into the exciting and challenging world of molecular force spectroscopy. Matthew F. Paige, University ofSaskatchewan, Journal of the American Chemical Society Mod ern materials science and biophysics are increasingly focused on studying and controlling intermolecular interactions on the single-molecule level. Molecular force spectroscopywas developed in the past decade as the result of several unprecedented advance s in the capabilities of modern scientific instrumentation, and defines a number of techniques that use mechanical force measurements to study interactionsbetween single molecules and molecular assemblies in chemical and biological systems. Examples of th ese techniques, which typically target a specific range of experimental systems and geometries, include atomic force microscopy,optical tweezers, surface forces apparatus, and magnetic tweezers. With contributions by internationally renowned scientists, H andbook of Molecular Force Spectroscopy is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of modern forcespectroscopy, including fundamentals of intermolecular forces, technical aspects of the force measurements, and practical applications. The Handbook present s reviews of fundamental physical concepts of loading single and multiplechemical bonds on the nanometer scale, covers practical aspects of modern single-molecule level techniques, and describes several representative applications of force spectroscopy to the study of chemical and biological processes.Computer modeling of force spectroscopy experiments is addressed as well. In sum, this volume is an authoritative guide to planning, understanding, and

Title:Symmetry [electronic resource] : Cultural-historical and ontological aspects of science-arts relations The natural and man-made world in an interdisciplinary approach
Author(s): Gyrgy Darvas
Date:2007
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:All of us have a certain conception of what symmetry means, at least as far as its main forms are concerned (like mirror-reflection or rotation, but only rarely translation). What are the common features of these transformations?How can one generalis e them to explain similar phenomena that appear in different arts and sciences? What other forms of symmetry can we include in the scope of our study by the application of these generalised rules? How can a commonphenomenon lend possible solutions from on e discipline to another? Did you know that symmetry is a universal concept that has appeared in all cultures since prehistoric times, accompanying us through the history of mankind? Whatimportant role have asymmetries like the one-handedness of the neutri no played in the formation of matter, from the assumed Big Bang through to the asymmetries of the human brain? This book tries to explain these and a number ofrelated questions. This is the first comprehensive book on the topic since the publication of H. Weyls popular book on symmetry more than fifty years ago. It is relevant to almost all fields of science where symmetry appears as aphenomenon or is applied as a method, and where the concept is present in contemporary sciences, humanities and arts. Symm etry used to be a fundamental phenomenon in crystallography, where its basic concept was elaborated, inmorphological biology, and of course in mathematics, which provided its exact description. In the last half century symmetry (and symmetry breaking) has become a leading principle in physics, in all sciences that deal with thestructure of matter, as well as in the biochemistry of proteins, the study of the genetic code, brain research (where functional asymmetries have been revealed), psychology, and in developing architectural structures and in businessdecision-making, to name but a few examples. This book seeks to find common regularities among these apparently disparate phenomena. It covers most
