Biomembranes: Structure of Biomembranes and Their Models

  • Dennis Chapman
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB)

Abstract

There has now been considerable basic research devoted to an understanding of Biomembrane Structure and Function. This research has revealed the general structure of biomembranes such as the importance of the lipid bilayer matrix, the various arrangements of the proteins which are extrinsic in some cases and intrinsic or integral in others. Detailed studies by a variety of physical techniques have given information about the dynamic characteristics of biomembranes including properties such as fluidity, phase transitions, diffusion characteristics and in a very few cases detailed information about integral protein structure. In this talk I will attempt to summarise some of these studies so as to provide a basis for the development of our later discussions on the technological possibilities of membrane mimicry for vesicles, thin films, biosensors, etc.
