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...

I need to construct a model of curved lipid bilayer with electric properties like the cell membrane in real situation. I want to investigate the lipid bilayer’s action under the...
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.
Controlling Membrane Organization: Effects of pH, Ions, and composition
out of 5 stars
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...
