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.

Title:Towards Autonomous Soft Matter Systems [electronic resource] : Experiments on Membranes and Active Emulsions
Author(s): Shashi Thutupalli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the assembly, organization and resultant collective dynamics of soft matter systems maintained away from equilibrium byan energy flux. Living matter is the ultimate example of such systems, which arecomprised of different constit uents on very different scales (ions, nucleic acids, proteins, cells). The result of their diverse interactions, maintained using the energy from physiological processes, is a fantastically well-organizedand dynamic whole. This work describes results from minimal, biomimetic systems and primarily investigates membranes and active emulsions, as well as key aspects of both soft matter and non-equilibrium phenomena. It isshown thatthese minimal reconstitutions are already capable of a range of complex behavi our such as nonlinear electric responses, chemical communication and locomotion. These studies will bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of complexsystems by reconstituting key aspects of their form and function in simple model systems. Further, they may also serve as the first technological steps towards artificial soft functional matter

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:Brownian Dynamics at Boundaries and Interfaces [electronic resource] : In Physics, Chemistry, and Biology
Author(s): Zeev Schuss
Date:2013
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:Brownian dynamics serve as mathematical models for the diffusive motion of microscopic particles of various shapes in gaseous, liquid, or solid environments. The renewed interest in Brownian dynamics is due primarily to their keyrole in molecular and cellular biophysics: diffusion of ions and molecules is the driver of all life. Brownian dynamics simulations are the numerical realizations of stochastic differential equations that model the functions ofbiological micro devices such as protein ionic ch annels of biological membranes, cardiac myocytes, neuronal synapses, and many more. Stochastic differential equations are ubiquitous models in computational physics, chemistry,biophysics, computer science, communications theory, mathematical finance theor y, and many other disciplines. Brownian dynamics simulations of the random motion of particles, be it molecules or stock prices, give rise to mathematicalproblems that neither the kinetic theory of Maxwell and Boltzmann, nor Einsteins and Langevins theori es of Brownian motion could predict. This book takes the readers on a journey that starts with the rigorous definition ofmathematical Brownian motion, and ends with the explicit solution of a series of complex problems that have immediate applications. It is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, theoretical chemists, and physiologists who areinterested in modeling, analysis, and simulation of micro devices of microbiology. The book contains exercises and worked out examples throughout

Note:Zeta-function regularization is a powerful method in perturbation theory. This book is meant as a guide for the student of this subject. Everything is explained in detail, in particular the mathematical difficulties and trickypoints, and several appl ications are given to show how the procedure works in practice (e.g. Casimir effect, gravity and string theory, high-temperature phase transition, topological symmetry breaking, noncommutative spacetime). Theformulas some of which are new can be used for physically meaningful, accurate numerical calculations. The book is to be considered as a basic introduction and a collection of exercises for those who want to apply this regularizationprocedure in practice. This thoroughly revised, updated and expanded edition includes in particular new explicit formulas on the general quadratic, Chowla-Selberg series case, an interplay with the Hadamard calculus, and features anew chapter on recent cosmological applications including the calculation of the vacuum ener gy fluctuations at large scale in braneworld and other models

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

Title:The Physics of Proteins [electronic resource] An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics

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:Device and Materials Modeling in PEM Fuel Cells is a specialized text that compiles the mathematical details and results of both device and materials modeling in a single volume. Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells willlikely have an impact on our way of life similar to the integrated circuit. The potential applications range from the micron scale to large scale industrial production. Successful integration of PEM fuel cells into the mass market willrequire new materials and a deeper understand ing of the balance required to maintain various operational states. This book contains articles from scientists who contribute to fuel cell models from both the materials and deviceperspectives. Topics such as catalyst layer performance and operation, rea ctor dynamics, macroscopic transport, and analytical models are covered under device modeling. Materials modeling include subjects relating to the membrane andthe catalyst such as proton conduction, atomistic structural modeling, quantum molecular dynamic s, and molecular-level modeling of the anode and cathode electrocatalysts.

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: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:Extremum Problems for Eigenvalues of Elliptic Operators [electronic resource]
Author(s): Antoine Henrot
Date:2006
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Problems linking the shape of a domain or the coefficients of an elliptic operator to the sequence of its eigenvalues are among the most fascinating of mathematical analysis. In this book, we focus on extremal problems. Forinstance, we look for a dom ain which minimizes or maximizes a given eigenvalue of the Laplace operator with various boundary conditions and various geometric constraints. We also consider the case of functions of eigenvalues. Weinvestigate similar questions for other elliptic opera tors, such as the Schrdinger operator, non homogeneous membranes, or the bi-Laplacian, and we look at optimal composites and optimal insulation problems in terms of eigenvalues.Providing also a self-contained presentation of classical isoperimetric inequa lities for eigenvalues and 30 open problems, this book will be useful for pure and applied mathematicians, particularly those interested in partialdifferential equations, the calculus of variations, differential geometry, or spectral theory

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
