Ionic Interactions in Biological and Physical Systems: a Variational Treatment
All biology occurs in ionic mixtures loosely called Ringer solutions. Biology depends on interactions of ions. Interactions of Na+, K+, and Ca2+ with channel proteins produce electrical signals of nerves and coordinate muscle contraction including the heart. Proteins, channels, and nucleic acids...
Mathematics of Ions in Channels and Solutions: Stochastic Derivations, Direct, Variational and Inverse Solutions that fit Data
05 Feb 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Bob Eisenberg
Literally thousands of biologists study the properties of channels in experiments every day. My collaborators and I have shown how the relevant equations can be derived (almost) from stochastic differential equations, and how they can be solved in inverse, variational, and direct problems using...
Ionic Selectivity in Channels: complex biology created by the balance of simple physics
3.5 out of 5 stars
05 Jun 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Bob Eisenberg
An important class of biological molecules—proteins called ionic channels—conduct ions (like Na+ , K+ , Ca2+ , and Cl− ) through a narrow tunnel of fixed charge (‘doping’). Ionic channels control the movement of electric charge and current across biological membranes and so play a role in...
