The Elsevier book-series "Advances in Planar Lipid Bilayers and Liposomes’ (APLBL) provides a global platform for a broad community of experimental and theoretical researchers studying cell membranes, lipid model membranes and lipid self-assemblies from the micro- to the nanoscale. Planar lipid bilayers are widely studied due to their ubiquity in nature and find their application in the formulation of biomimetic model membranes and in the design of artificial dispersion of liposomes. Moreover, lipids self-assemble into a wide range of other structures including micelles and the liquid crystalline hexagonal and cubic phases. Consensus has been reached that curved membrane phases do play an important role in nature as well, especially in dynamic processes such as vesicles fusion and cell communication. Self-assembled lipid structures have enormous potential as dynamic materials ranging from artificial lipid membranes to cell membranes, from biosensing to controlled drug delivery, from pharmaceutical formulations to novel food products to mention a few. An assortment of chapters in APLBL represents both an original research as well as comprehensives reviews written by world leading experts and young researchers. The APLBL book series gives a survey on recent theoretical as well as experimental results on lipid micro and nanostructures. In addition, the potential use of the basic knowledge in applications like clinically relevant diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, biotechnology, pharmaceutical engineering and food products is presented. An assortment of chapters in APLBL represents both an original research as well as comprehensives reviews written by world leading experts and young researchers.

Biological Techniques is a series of volumes aimed at introducing to a wide audience the latest advances in methodology. The pitfalls and problems of new techniques are given due consideration, as are those small but vital details not always explicit in the methods sections of journal papers. In recent years, most biological laboratories have been invaded by computers and a wealth of new DNA technology and this will be reflected in many of the titles appearing in the series. The books will be of value to advanced researchers and graduate students seeking to learn and apply new techniques, and will be useful to teachers of advanced undergraduate courses involving practical or project work. Methods of constructing artificial membranes (planar lipid bilayers) from the main components of cell membranes (lipids) date from the early 1960s. Planar bilayers offer direct, quantitative experimental approaches to the study of membranes of precisely determined composition which can be manipulated by the experimenter. Pore-forming molecules, transporter molecules, ATP-dependent enzymes and other entities can be incorporated into the bilayers to simulate biological functions. Reconstitution of such functions in this way remains a key final step in attributing a functional role to purified cell membrane proteins. This book aims to demystify these techniques and begins with a broad overview of the development of the subject before dealing with the protocols involved. Key references are provided at the end of the book together with a list of suppliers. Full practical details include: How to set up conventional painted and folded bilayer experiments Patch-dipping methods and use of giant liposomes Lipid characterization, preparation and purification Discussion of construction of essential apparatus, flux measurements, electrical recording, data acquisition and computer support Biochemical methods for use in planar bilayer experiments Techniques for incorporation of native proteins and other molecules

This book summarizes the current status of research on bilayer lipid membranes (planar lipid bilayers and spherical liposomes). In addition to describing the properties of lipid bilayers and examining biomembrane phenomena, the book has two other objectives. The first is to present practical methods for the formation and study of lipid bilayers with either aqueous or metal-lipid bilayer interfaces. The second aim is to treat planar lipid bilayers as a new type of interfacial adsorption phenomena. The first nine chapters cover properties of biomembranes, basic principles of membrane biophysics, transport, electrochemistry, physiology, bioenergetics, and photobiology. Chapter 10 presents the following topics: lipid bilayers in medicine, supported lipid bilayers as sensors, a short discussion of liposomes, and solar energy transduction via semiconductor septum photovoltaic cells based on natural photosynthesis.

Dieses Lehrbuch ist interdisziplinär angelegt, denn die Gesetze und Methoden der Physik und der Chemie ermöglichen das Studium der Zellen von Pflanzen und Tieren auf molekularer Ebene. Der Autor schafft eine Basis, die Biophysik der belebten Welt durch die schrittweise Betrachtung von Konformation, Dynamik, Hydratation, Eigenschaften der Polyelektrolyte und der Assoziation der Biopolymere zu verstehen. Jeder der Teile wird durch einen Literaturanhang ergänzt. Die mathematischen Herleitungen von Gesetzmäßigkeiten werden stark beschränkt und eher in vertiefenden Übungen und in einem Anhang eingeübt. Das Buch ist eine Fundgrube für Chemie- und Physikstudenten, die sich mehr Wissen über die molekulare Biochemie und Biophysik aneignen wollen.

Advances in Lipid Research, Volume 21 covers several significant and emerging areas in lipid metabolism, including apolipoprotein metabolism and leukotrienes. This book discusses the role of fat in the functioning of the immune system. Organized into eight chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the metabolism of apolipoprotein B, which is the principal protein of chylomicrons, very low density, and low density lipoprotein. This text then describes the metabolism, biosynthesis, and pharmacology of leukotrienes. Other chapters consider the relation of lipids to immunology and explain the roles played by lipids in the structure and function of yeast membrane. This book discusses as well the general importance in the plant kingdom and the place of some carotenoids in human biology. The final chapter deals with the influence of proteins on configuration and function of reconstituted lipid membranes. This book is a valuable resource for biologists, chemists, biochemists, scientists, and research workers.

In Bilayer Lipid Membranes. Structure and Mechanical Properties the authors use new methods of measurement, which they have themselves developed, to present an analysis of the relation between membrane structure and viscoelastic properties, in particular in the transversal direction. Hianik and Passechnik's approach is fundamentally different from the usual one, in that they analyze lipid bilayer dynamics during various modes of deformation, arriving at a new, `three-layer' model that accounts for the great heterogeneity of biomembranes. The macroscopic parameters of membranes have been measured using a wide variety of methods, leading to a discussion of the correlations between the parameters. There is also an extensive discussion of the dynamic changes in mechanical properties of lipid bilayers in the course of conformational transition of integral proteins. During the conformational changes of proteins, the structure of a bilayer undergoes a transition, reaching a new, stable membrane state. The book is the first to present a comprehensive analysis of long-distance interaction in lipid bilayers and of molecular mechanisms of mechanoreception. Audience: Scientists and graduate students working in biophysics, membranology, physiology, medicine, pharmacology, bioelectronics, electrochemistry, and colloid chemistry.
