Note:There has been a long history of interaction between mathematics and physiology. This book looks in detail at a wide selection of mathematical models in physiology, showing how physiological problems can be formulated and studiedmathematically, and h ow such models give rise to interesting and challenging mathematical questions. With its coverage of many recent models it gives an overview of the field, while many older models are also discussed, to put themodern work in context. In this second edition the coverage of basic principles has been expanded to include such topics as stochastic differential equations, Markov models and Gibbs free energy, and the selection of models has alsobeen expanded to include some of the basic models of fluid transport, respiration/perfusion, blood diseases, molecular motors, smooth muscle, neuroendrocine cells, the baroreceptor loop, turboglomerular oscillations, blood clotting andthe retina. Owing to this extensive coverage, the second edition is published in two volu mes. This first volume deals with the fundamental principles of cell physiology and the second with the physiology of systems. The book includesdetailed illustrations and numerous excercises with selected solutions. The emphasis throughout is on the appli cations because of this interdisciplinary approach, this book will be of interest to students and researchers, not only inmathematics, but also in bioengineering, physics, chemistry, biology, statistics and medicine.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Biology and Mechanics of Blood Flows presents the basic knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques necessary to carry out investigations of the cardiovascular system using modeling and simulation. Part I of this two-volumesequence, Biology, addresses the nanoscopic and microscopic scales. The nanoscale corresponds to the scale of biochemical reaction cascades involved in cell adaptation to mechanical stresses among other stimuli. The microscale is thescale of stress-induced tissue remodeling associate d with acute or chronic loadings. The cardiovascular system, like any physiological system, has a complicated three-dimensional structure and composition. Its time dependent behavioris regulated, and this complex system has many components. In this author itative work, the author provides a survey of relevant cell components and processes, with detailed coverage of the electrical and mechanical behaviors ofvascular cells, tissues, and organs. Because the behaviors of vascular cells and tissues are tightly coupled to the mechanics of flowing blood, the major features of blood flows and the Navier-Stokes equations of mass and momentumconservation are introduced at the conclusion of this volume. This book will appeal to any biologist, chemist, physicist, or a pplied mathematician with an interest in the functioning of the cardiovascular system

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:X-ray crystallography is the pre-eminent technique for visualizing the structures of macromolecules at atomic resolution. These structures are central to understanding the detailed mechanisms of biological processes, and todiscovering novel therapeut ics using a structure-based approach. As yet, structures are known for only a small fraction of the proteins encoded by human and pathogenic genomes. To counter the myriad modern threats of disease, there isan urgent need to determine the structures of th e thousands of proteins whose structure and function remain unknown. This volume draws on the expertise of leaders in the field of macromolecular crystallography to illuminate thedramatic developments that are accelerating progress in structural biology. Their contributions span the range of techniques from crystallization through data collection, structure solution and analysis, and show how modernhigh-throughput methods are contributing to a deeper understanding of medical problems

Author(s): Michal Kurzynski
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Living organisms are open thermodynamic systems whose functional structure has developed and been kinetically frozen during the historical process of biological evolution. A thermodynamics of both nonequilibrium and complexsystems is needed for their description. In this book, the foundations of such a thermodynamics are presented. Biological processes at the cellular level are considered as coupled chemical reactions and transport processes acrossinternal and the cytoplasmic membrane. All these proc esses are catalyzed by specific enzymes hence the kinetics of enzymatic catalysis and its control are described here in detail. The coupling of several processes through a commonenzyme is considered in the context of free energy or signal transduction. Sp ecial attention is paid to evidence for a rich stochastic internal dynamics of native proteins and its possible role in the control of enzyme activity and inthe action of biological molecular machines

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

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
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
