Analysis of Diffusion of Biological Materials by Quasielastic Light Scattering

  • Herman Z. Cummins
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 59)

Abstract

The investigation of translational and rotational diffusion coefficients represents a principal application of laser light scattering in biology. Diffusion coefficients of numerous biologically important molecules as well as viruses, membrane vesicles and biopolymers have been obtained by this technique.

A brief review of the experimental and theoretical aspects of diffusion measurements will be presented including the analysis of polydispersity and time dependent studies of aggregation. Recent experimental investigations of fibrinogen polymerization and of the properties of membrane and phospholipid vesicles, micelles and micro-emulsions will be described. The emphasis will be on problems related to biological self-assembly.
