HANDBOOK of contemporary BIOPHYSICS

Series Editor Thomas Jue, PhD

Handbook of recent Biophysics brings present biophysics themes into concentration, in order that biology, scientific, engineering, arithmetic, and physical-science scholars or researchers can research basic techniques and the appliance of latest innovations in addressing biomedical demanding situations. Chapters explicate the conceptual framework of the physics formalism and illustrate the biomedical functions. With the addition of challenge units, publications to additional examine, and references, the reader can proceed to discover independently the information presented.

Finally, an expression is needed that captures the free energy of bonding the sites together. This expression is based on Wertheim's first-order perturbation theory [70]. It is rather complicated, and so we just give a high-level description of it here. For details, see [71,72,67]. The modified i-SAFT theory treats the chains as a sequence of N tangentially bonded monomers enforced by giving each segment a label and allowing segments to bond exclusively to their specific matching segments.

Note that the changes in S(z) induced by alcohol adsorption are asymmetric (in each leaflet), in that the change is greater in some regions of the bilayer than in others. These changes in the pressure profile could potentially influence the conformational state of intrinsic membrane proteins, and hence provide a nonspecific mechanism for the biological effects of alcohol. 15.
