  • protein
  • Topographic imaging allows visualizing single proteins and protein assemblies in native membranes, as well as substructures of live cells, such as cytoskeletal architecture. (ingentaconnect.com)
  • Glucose-6-phosphatase-β is a ubiquitously expressed, 346-amino acid membrane protein that shares 36% sequence identity with glucose-6-phosphatase-α. (wikipedia.org)
  • Such processes include self-assembly, developmental processes, gene regulation networks, protein-protein interaction networks, biological transport (active transport, passive transport) networks, and gene assembly in unicellular organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • permeability
  • The thickness of the biomembrane determines the permeability of the membrane and ethanol, which can be used as a solvent, is able to reduce the thickness of the biomembrane which is one way this amphiphilic molecule is able to permeate through the biomembrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • plasma
  • For example, in human erythrocytes the cytosolic side (the side facing the cytosol) of the plasma membrane consists mainly of phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidylinositol. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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.

  • Chemical
  • The chemical reaction was sufficiently fast in the case of the GP membrane, that the gas phase limited the mass transfer. (environmental-expert.com)
  • These membrane proteins have various functions and characteristics and catalyze different chemical reactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • They will dissociate only with chemical treatment that breaks the membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • Actual chemical structure of the anaesthetic agent per se is not important, but its molecular volume plays the major role: the more space within membrane is occupied by anaesthetic - the greater is the anaesthetic effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • channels
  • Accumulation of critical amounts of anaesthetic causes membrane thickening sufficient to reversibly alter function of membrane ion channels thus providing anaesthetic effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • processes
  • These help organize membrane components into localized areas that are involved in specific processes, such as signal transduction. (wikipedia.org)
  • More recent computational systems abstracted from natural processes include swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems, membrane computing, and amorphous computing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cellular automata have been applied to modelling a variety of phenomena such as communication, growth, reproduction, competition, evolution and other physical and biological processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • transfer
  • The Transfer of Calcium and Strontium Across Biological Membranes represents the proceedings of a Conference on The Transfer of Calcium and Strontium Across Biological Membranes, held in Cornell University, Ithaca, New York on May 13-16, 1962. (elsevier.com)
  • These subjects are all important to understand the transfer of calcium and strontium across membranes. (elsevier.com)
  • A section describes the biological transfer and movement of calcium and strontium across kidney, mammary gland, nerve, and muscle. (elsevier.com)
  • The clean water oxygen transfer efficiency (OTE) of a full scale non-porous hollow fibre gas permeable (GP) membrane (surface area of 500 m2) was evaluated at inlet air pressures of 1.2, 1.4, and 1.8 atm using two established testing methods. (environmental-expert.com)
  • form
  • To form a basis of comparison with traditional aeration technologies, additional testing was done with conventional aerators (fine bubble and coarse bubble diffusers) replacing the GP membrane. (environmental-expert.com)
  • function
  • However, the corresponding residue in glucose-6-phosphatase-α (Lys76) resides within the ER membrane and its function, if any, is currently undetermined. (wikipedia.org)
