• hydrophobic
  • Despite decades of scientific work on membranes, the onset of which can be traced to the first lipid bilayer model by Gorter and Grendel, many open questions persist regarding the relation of membrane composition, structure, and dynamics to the ability of membranes to laterally segregate and form domains with specific hydrophobic thickness, ordering, and lateral pressure, hence to make the membrane functional.

  • Aspects
  • This book is organized into seven sections encompassing 22 chapters, and deals first with some of the properties of biological membranes, the general aspects of ion transport, and chelation of divalent cations. (elsevier.com)
  • The Mechanism of Gated Calcium Transport Across Biological Membranes presents the proceedings of a symposium, which was an unprecedented attempt to bring together diverse groups working on various aspects of the problem of gated Ca2+ transport. (elsevier.com)
  • molecular
  • In molecular recognition force microscopy, interaction forces between tip-bound ligands and membrane-embedded receptors can be studied under well-controlled buffer conditions and effector's concentrations. (ingentaconnect.com)
