Advances in Planar Lipid Bilayers & Liposomes, Vol. 6 by A. Leitmannova Liu

By A. Leitmannova Liu

Advances in Planar Lipid Bilayers and Liposomes, quantity 6, maintains to incorporate invited chapters on a extensive diversity of subject matters, masking either major preparations of the reconstituted process, particularly planar lipid bilayers and round liposomes. The invited authors current the most recent leads to this fascinating multidisciplinary box in their personal examine group.
Many of the participants operating in either fields over many a long time have been in shut collaboration with the overdue Prof. H. Ti Tien, the founding editor of this booklet sequence. There also are chapters written by means of many of the more youthful iteration of scientists incorporated during this sequence. This quantity retains in brain the wider target with either structures, planar lipid bilayers and round liposomes, that's the additional improvement of this interdisciplinary box worldwide.
* Contributions from beginners and demonstrated and skilled researchers
* Exploring theoretically and experimentally the planar lipid bilayer structures and round liposomes
* This quantity is devoted to mark the Bilayer Lipid Membranes forty fifth anniversary

Handbook of Ultraviolet Methods

It is a booklet that I wrote for myself. It was once all started sixteen years in the past whilst my tasks started to comprise the origina­ tion of ultraviolet spectrophotometric checking out equipment for items of in­ terest to my corporation. Painful and wasteful stories of rediscovering anyone else's ana­ lytical methods quickly resulted in my preserving notebooks and card documents of released UV tools.

Example text

Some of these peptides are believed to cooperatively selfassemble into membrane pores. Thus, they can not only facilitate pore formation but they can actively induce it. Despite their importance there are currently only few theoretical investigations on the energetics of peptide-induced pore formation [37,38,40,63]. Our model provides a simple way to describe the underlying physics of peptide-induced pore formation in lipid membranes. Our theoretical analysis of the stability and energetics of a single membrane pore is based on a simple and physically transparent model [1,2], which however involves a number of approximations.
