Contents:
Structure of Membranes -- Lipids in Membranes -- The Membrane as a Transporter.- Lipid Bilayer-Membrane Protein Coupling -- Membrane-Based Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery -- Membrane-Related Diseases.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: 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 electrical measurements 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 to understand biological processes by applying both simple 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 doors for high-level pharmaceutical approaches towards fighting membrane- and cell-related diseases.
