In Viral Membrane Proteins: Structure, Function, and Drug Design, Wolfgang Fischer summarizes the current structural and functional knowledge of membrane proteins encoded by viruses. In addition, contributors to the book address questions about proteins as potential drug : Paperback. This edited book contains a compilation of 14 advanced academic chapters dealing with the structure and function of membrane protein complexes. This rapidly advancing important field of study closely parallels those on soluble protein complexes, and viral protein and nucleoprotein : $ Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters in Membrane Protein Structure and Function Characterization: Methods and Protocols provide different techniques to analyze the functional and structural status of membrane proteins. Chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the. Introduction. This edited book contains a compilation of 14 advanced academic chapters dealing with the structure and function of membrane protein complexes. This rapidly advancing important field of study closely parallels those on soluble protein complexes, and viral protein and nucleoprotein complexes. Diverse topics are included in this book, ranging from membrane–bound enzymes to ion channels, proton pumps .

This edited book contains a compilation of 14 advanced academic chapters dealing with the structure and function of membrane protein complexes. This rapidly advancing important field of study closely parallels those on soluble protein complexes, and viral protein and nucleoprotein complexes. Structure and Function of Biological Membranes explains the membrane phenomena at the molecular level through the use of biochemical and biophysical approaches. The book is an in-depth study of the structure and function of membranes. It is divided into three main parts. In many cases, the function of a membrane protein and the topology of its polypeptide chain in the membrane can be predicted based on its homology with another, well-characterized protein. In this section, we examine the characteristic structural features of membrane proteins and some of their basic functions. function. This chapter and Chapter 3 extend the study of structure-function relationships to polypeptides, which catalyze specific reac-tions, transport materials within a cell or across a membrane, protect cells from foreign invaders, regulate specific biological processes, and support various Size: 2MB.

  Meeting the need for a book on developing and using new methods to investigate membrane proteins, this is the first of its kind to present the full range of novel techniques in one resource. Top researchers from around the world focus on the physical principles exploited in the different techniques, and provide examples of how these can bring. The Plasma membrane is considered to conform to the fluid mosaic model of the cell membrane proposed by singer and Nicholson. The membrane is composed of proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. There is wide variation in the lipid-protein ratio between different cell membrane.   Primary structure is the ultimate determinant of the overall conformation of a protein. The primary structure of any protein arrived at its current state as a result of mutation and selection over evolutionary time. Primary structure of proteins is mandated by . Some of the proteins are peripheral membrane proteins such as src or the GPI-linked adhesion molecule Thy-1, while others are transmembrane proteins such as the T-cell receptor. Usually the included proteins have signaling-related functions, and one model proposes that these proteins may direct the organization of selected lipids around them.
