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:Modelling the Short QT Syndrome Gene Mutations [electronic resource] : And Their Role in Cardiac Arrhythmogenesis
Author(s): Ismail Adeniran
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The Short QT Syndrome (SQTS) is characterized by abbreviated QT intervals on the electrocardiogram, increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death. Although several gene mutations have been identified in SQT patients, therole of these mutatio ns in promoting arrhythmogenesis is still not completely understood. Consequently, this thesis employs multidisciplinary approaches to develop a 3D virtual heart, which is then used to elucidate how the short QTsyndrome facilitates and maintains ventricul ar arrhythmias and to determine its effects on ventricular mechanical contraction. The findings in this thesis provide a comprehensive and mechanistic explanation for a number of genemutations associated with potassium channels in terms of susceptibility to arrhythmia. The multiphysics models developed provide a powerful platform for identifying the root causes of various arrhythmias and investigating therapeuticinterventions for these diseases. The thesis was examined by Prof. Chris Huang of the Universi ty of Cambridge, the most authoritative figure in cardiac electrophysiology, who has described the work as outstanding.

Note:Physics, mathematics and chemistry all play a vital role in understanding the true nature and functioning of biological membranes, key elements of living processes. Besides simple spectroscopic observations and electricalmeasurements of membranes we address in this book the phenomena of coexistence and independent existence of different membrane components using various theoretical approaches. This treatment will be helpful for readers who want tounderstand biological processes by applying both simpl e observations and fundamental scientific analysis. It provides a deep understanding of the causes and effects of processes inside membranes, and will thus eventually open new doorsfor high-level pharmaceutical approaches towards fighting membrane- and ce ll-related diseases

Title:Formation and Cooperative Behaviour of Protein Complexes on the Cell Membrane [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ksenia Guseva
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With the aim of providing a deeper insight into possible mechanisms of biological self-organization, this thesis presents new approaches to describe the process of self-assembly and the impact of spatial organization on thefunction of membrane protei ns, from a statistical physics point of view. It focuses on three important scenarios: the assembly of membrane proteins, the collective response of mechanosensitive channels and the function of the twinarginine translocation (Tat) system. Using methods f rom equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, general conclusions were drawn that demonstrate the importance of the protein-protein interactions. Namely, in the firstpart a general aggregation dynamics model is formulated, and used to show th at fragmentation crucially affects the efficiency of the self-assembly process of proteins. In the second part, by mapping the membrane-mediated forces into asimplified many-body system, the dynamic and equilibrium behaviour of interacting mechanosensitiv e channels is derived, showing that protein agglomeration strongly impacts its desired function. The final part develops a model thatincorporates both the agglomeration and transport function of the Tat system, thereby providing a comprehensive descriptio n of this self-organizing process

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Originally developed for the author's course at Union College, this text is designed for life science students who need to understand the connections of fundamental physics to modern biology and medicine. Almost all areas ofmodern life sciences integ rally involve physics in both experimental techniques and in basic understanding of structure and function. Physics of the Life Sciences is not a watered-down, algebra-based engineering physics book withsections on relevant biomedical topics added as an a fterthought. This authoritative and engaging text, which is designed to be covered in a two-semester course, was written with a thoroughgoing commitment to the needs and interests oflife science students. Although covering most of the standard topics in i ntroductory physics in a more or less traditional sequence, the author gives added weight and space to concepts and applications of greater relevance to the lifesciences. Students benefit from occasional sidebars using calculus to derive fundamental relat ions, but only algebra and trigonometry are used to explore the basic physical concepts in the main body of the text and to solveend-of-chapter problems

Title:Life As a Matter of Fat [electronic resource] : The Emerging Science of Lipidomics

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:LIFE - as a Matter of Fat Lipidomics is the science of the fats called lipids. Lipids are as important for life as proteins, sugars, and genes. The present book gives a multi-disciplinary perspective on the physics of life and theparticular role play ed by lipids and the lipid-bilayer component of cell membranes. The book is aimed at undergraduate students and young research workers within physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, nutrition, as wellas pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. The emphasis is on the physical properties of lipid membranes seen as soft and molecularly structured interfaces. By combining and synthesizing insights obtained from a variety of recentstudies, an attempt is made to clarify what membrane structure is an d how it can be quantitatively described. Furthermore, it is shown how biological function mediated by membranes is controlled by lipid membrane structure andorganization on length scales ranging from the size of the individual molecule, across molecular assemblies of proteins and lipid domains in the range of nanometers, to the size of whole cells. Applications of lipids in nano-technologyand biomedicine are also described. The Emerging Science of Lipidomics We have just witnessed a scientific revolution at the end of the 20th century that took us through the genomics era with a focus on sequencing genes and mappinggene products. We are now in the middle of the proteomics era where the multitude of proteins that are encoded in the genes are identified an d their functions are unveiled. In front of us we have a new era recognizing the role oflipids. The science of lipidomics is emerging. Lipidomics involves a quantitative experimental and theoretical study of, e.g. lipid and membrane self-assembly, lipid-p rotein interactions, lipid-gene interactions, and the biophysicalproperties of lipid structure, function, and dynamics
