  1. Understanding Movement of Molecules across the Cell Membrane

    17 Apr 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Brandi Childress, NNCI Nano

    This lesson uses a macro-model to demonstrate the diffusion of molecules across the cell membrane.  A deshelled egg serves as the cell model to observe movement in and out of the “cell”.  Students will learn that the cell membrane is composed of a complex nano-structured...

  2. I need to construct a model of curved lipid bilayer like the cell membrane in real situation

  3. Discussion about Ion Channels Using Reduced Model Approaches

    21 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: James Fonseca

    The seminar will cover the reasons how the channels are able to selectively permit the flow of certain species of ions while blocking other physiological cations.

  4. Controlling Membrane Organization: Effects of pH, Ions, and composition

    23 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jennifer Hovis

    Our main research interests are in determining, at the molecular level, how cell membranes are organized and how that organization relates to function. The primary molecular building blocks of cell membranes are lipids, amphipathic molecules that assemble into two opposed leaflets forming a...
